A"Wizard of OZ" story

Dorothy Louise Gage 
only graced our planet for five months. 
Not nearly long enough for her to be 
concerned about her legacy, 
yet billions of people have been 
indirectly affected by her existence.

After her death, her aunt 
(who longed terribly for a daughter, but only had sons) was so distraught that she had to be rushed away 
from the funeral to receive medical attention.

Hoping to cheer her up, her husband (Frank Baum) 
took a childrens' book that he had just finished writing, and changed the main characters name to Dorothy.
The book was called "The Wizard of Oz".
