My Deepest Sympathy goes out to all of my cousin Dorothy's family at this sad time. Like many cousins we had not kept in touch for many years, especially being in different states. I was just thinking about her & sadly my daughter just found her obit. online. Our Mother's were Sisters, and when we were young our parents had built summer cottages next to each other on Big Alum Lake. We enjoyed the best Summers swimming and playing together. We would make up story lines with a rock in the Lake as a castle and assume royal names and talk in assorted accents, and we amused ourselves to no end. We'd take the row boat across the lake to pick blueberries or just row around or go fishing. Sometimes we climbed Mt. Dan. Our dear Pepere, Joseph Lataille, was always around watching over us and would help us cook any fish we caught. (I will try to attach a photo of him) Such fond memories...
With Heartfelt Sympathy and Love to everyone,  Lorraine White and Daughter, Erin
