As we shared our stories, I learned that this was a most interesting, talented family and liked each other well enough to want to travel together every year. They were musicians, teachers, nurses and a doctor. But at the head of the clan was Dorothy. After raising five children (the son in California couldn’t make it this year), and being divorced, she went to law school so she could be a voice for the underserved. She retired from practicing law at 80 and has lived alone in Greenwich Village, New York, for many years. She is now 88.
