My condolences to my cousins. Dolly grew up in the same neighborhood and I always looked up to her. Then she married my cousin. She was very special in her quiet ways. Thinking of you all! Tootie

I grew up with Dolly from the time we all lived on Exchange street. Her parents and her Grand mother Dolly were very nice people, So Dolly and I went way back and I had wonder how she was doing I had heard anything since she moved to Chicago area. I always loved her red hair.
I remember both of your parents from when I worked at the Dairy Store and at the race-track as a teenage..Those were great days and hope you have good memories of those and others too. Your Mom is now at peace and with your Dad and still watching over you..Remember the good times. I'm the last of the crew, Sara Dickinson Humphrey.
