To the Verheyen / Denny families you have my deepest condolences on the loss of Aunt Dot. I pray your best memories of her surround you and carry you through the sad times ahead.

One of my favorite memories with Aunt Dot was at the house with the "fish pool". I was spending a week with Nana and Grampa and we came over after church on Sunday and of course I went swimming. After lunch and swimming Aunt Dot was remembering stories with Nana about different times my dad got in trouble with the Nuns. I never laughed so much. On the way home Nana told me I didn't have to ask my dad about those times, he might remember them differently.

To all of Aunt Dot's children, I am so sorry for your loss at this time. Aunt Dot was very spunky, and set in her ways, but I always remember her with a smile and a look out the side of her eyes.
