    I was very sorry to learn on the internet today of Dortha’s recent passing. I have many fond memories of her and the whole Plank family from my earliest memories growing up with them as family friends and neighbors in Modesto. They were a significant part of my family from the days when Wynn and my father were good childhood friends. My sincere condolences to Dortha’s entire family!
