I wanted you to know how very much we loved Dot. She was a big sister to me growing up. My Mom loved her like a daughter. Dot was always available to listen to us, even when she was undergoing leukemia treatments. She is so greatly missed. We are all better people because of her great love of the Lord and her great love for all of us. She was a true example of friend and sister in Christ. Our love forever, Cheryl, Dave, and Kelly Blake
