From Here to the Next Great Adventure

For those of my friends who knew my mother-in-law, Dorothy, she joined her Lord and Savior in heaven early this morning. She was hoping to hear that her sixth grandchild was delivered safely, but even her stubborn Dutch soul could not keep her very stressed heart beating any longer.  Norm and I were with her.  May the Lord bless you and keep you, Dorothy.  May the Lord make his face to shine upon you.  And give you peace. And don't be too hard on those novice choir members in heaven!

Delighted with one of her six great-grandchilren.
At the same time that Dorothy was drawing her last breath, her granddaughter Alethea went into labor.  Alethea felt her grandmother was with her for a short while.  Eliza Stone was born at 7:24 a.m. She was 7 lbs. 1 oz. and 18.5 inches long.  She has dark hair like her father.  She has not had her eyes open long enough to see if she has her mother's blue eyes. She surely has the Gaume mouth, although at this point, she mostly looks like her father. Lucky girl as her father is very handsome...

 Welcome to the Gaume/Stone clans little Eliza.  We will tell you lots of stories about your wonderful great-grandmother Dorothy.
