Ally & John

Here’s the story of a lovely Lady
Who was bringing up one very handsome Boy
He has smarts and great looks, like his Mother
A favorite of all girls

Here’s the story of a man named John
Who was busy with two kids of his own
There were three of them living all together
Yet they were all alone

‘Til the one day when the Lady met this Fellow
And they knew that it was much more than a hunch,
That this group would somehow form a Family
That’s the way they all became the Doty Bunch

The Doty Bunch … the Doty Bunch

That’s the way they became the Doty Bunch!

" . . . John and I are reminiscing about our Wedding,

Thank You again for being there each step of the way.
You are the Best! "
