  1. Aunt will be missed. I loved my childhood spending so much time with yall. You made it so much fun. As an adult I am so sorry I didn’t keep in touch like I would have liked to. It was an honor being named after you. It took awhile for me to like Dortha as much as the Dianne but I finally did. Rest in peace Aunt Doodlebug..I love you, Dianne
