Dolly was our next door neighbor in Dalton for a few years, until we moved a block east to the new house my dad built around 1950. When my Kreader grandparents moved into our former home, Dolly was a great friend and support to my Grandma Lil. My heart goes out to Don, Greg and Phil and the rest of your siblings. Love from Jan Kreader

Rich. . . . Not Greg. I apologize for my slipping memory.

Dolly you made the holidays brighter when you came to Norma and Steve’s. You seemed like an extended grandma to me and that’s something I’ll never forget. Godspeed on your next level.
