    We used to go to Aunt Dootie’s home after Sunday School on the Sundays we didn’t want to sit through church sermons with Mom (Florence Seileman Pagett) :). There might be a little treat waiting for us there. We also remember what a great housekeeper she was. Us kids had to try hard not to make a mess.
    One year we went to Aunt Dootie and Uncle Dinky’s farm for Christmas. When I expressed disappointment in only receiving one gift and Diane and Janny had gotten several, Aunt Dootie found another small present for me without making me feel like the spoiled kid I apparently was at that time. The memories are good. We’ll miss her.
