I will always refer to the house in Rake as Kenny and Dorothy's house! Even though I was small at the time, it was comforting to know that there was family all around, and in this case, just across the street! Dorothy was such a classy lady...I loved her high heeled shoes...she would be right in style today. Her love of family was always evident in the conversations we had...never enough of those in the last years. Thank you for including the "Quams" in your lives. Love, Louise
