  1. To Al and all the Nessel Kids…we are deeply saddened by your loss. I remember when Grant and I lived a few doors down &
    all the kids came to play on our porch. I never tired of seeing
    Dorothy’s latest jewelry…She always dressed and accessorized
    for even just sitting around the pool…We laughed when we were
    both having a baby at the same time & cried when we lost a
    mutual friend…She was a classy lady and will be missed by many.
