I will always remember Dorothy with love. She was nothing but kind to me in our lives.I remember Dorothy marrying Orville at Lake Cumberland and coming to stay at papa Lays house. (I was about 7) Dorothy would do girly things with me and my sister. I remember she took tin cans, cut them in strips, wrapped cloth around them and rolled me and Marlene's hair. The curliest and prettiest hair you have ever seen. Will always be a cherished memory for me. R.I.P. Aunt Dorothy
