So many fond thoughts of you come to mind, all the times I spent at your home as Donna was my best school friend . You always treated me as a second daughter! May you have many great times reuniting in heaven with Donald and Donna. God Bless You and Much Love until We Meet Again. Sharon

Remembering my friend Dot brings back the many times of consoling her and laughing with her. Talking over her family and trying to lighten her worries as she went along life's way. She always would break out that infectious smile of hers. Sitting with her watching baseball games as she gave me all the statistics which I did not understand but she knew them specifically. I enjoyed being with her and when things got onto the level of her childhood I just listened and nodded and let her go on her journey home. I will miss Dot but am thankful that our Lord Jesus Christ, has taken her home which He promised that He had prepared for her, into the arms of her Donald and her family..... Dorothy rest in Peace with Love surrounding you always.
