  12. Hey Dorothy.
    I never got to know you very well. The last time I believe was at a family reunion a couple years ago, But I knew you through the stories that would echo in the family. You were such an amazing woman, strong, and gutsy. I want you to know I always pictured you as a Rosie the riviter style icon. I hope that the afterlife lets you shine again in your full glory. Your family loved you so much. You will be missed.

  14. Hey there my name is name! First of all congratulations this is a really well written article, I actually learned a thing or two. I am a mother of two boys, James 6 years old and Lucas 2 years old. I Just wanted to get your opinion on something – I was just reading this review of an online child reading system over at and that woman reviewing this system shows a 18 month child reading like 5 years old. I Would love to know what you think about it and what you think about this system she review..are you familiar with it? Thanks in advance! Can’t wait to hear your reply as I’m thinking about giving a try the system she recommends. My kids are my life and I want to provide them a better future.
