Memories & Candles
My best memories of growing up on Eastern Ave. included Dory. Tobogganing on the hill by Pearsons', playing in the woods behind Ludlams' house (and trying not to get caught), staying at the cottage, and hanging out on summer evenings on Ludlams' front porch just being kids. Dory's contagious laugh comes to mind when I think of those times. You couldn't help but laugh when you heard it, even if you had no idea what was so funny. And Dory

We always had such great fun with the Ludlam family and their extended families.
Dory was certainly a large part of the fun .
She was also so very kind to our little ones . They loved her smile and her energy and how she would be really interested in what they were trying to tell her.
We will always have fond memories of Dory .
Love, Mary and the Shine crew = Muffy, Ben, Molly , Jacob, Matt
Joel, Katey and Breanne.

At some point Dory crashed the Camaro and knocked her front teeth out. Then she moved to Texas, and

Dory had a smile that could light up a room. In recent decades, I saw her infrequently at family gatherings but when I first made eye contact with Dory she lit up and so did I. The conversation which followed was lively and enthusiastic and you were totally engaged.
Dory suffered long and hard and there is no doubt where she is now. I only hope to be able to see her there. Rest in peace, sweet girl.

All I have is good memories from family reunions and other outings. It was always fun to be around and interact with her. I will miss her.

I love this picture. That same little smile. I loved, more than anything else, getting that smile from Dori--full-on amusement, but always with a hint of mischief, the readiness to take a silly concept or naughty thought to the next level. But there was also too, always kindness, a strong sense about never taking a joke too far to where somebody would get hurt.
Dori was one of my closest friends, in middle school and high school. I sat behind her
