Ms. Lottie was in the same tap dance group with my mom Doris Butler. That bunch of gals, the Dancing Danes were so fun. When they all went to Las Vegas to perform, boarding the flight in their matching sparkly shirts and black slacks I can't imagine what their fellow passengers thought, but they were very well received as the stars they were. How fun Heaven must me with all of them together again. Great memories.
