Words are hard to find to explain what our little Dot means to me. I entered her life at age 13 or 14. She was my teacher then in Sunday School. The lessons that Dot taught me has carried me throughout my life. She was my mentor. The times we shared were so special. The ladies retreats we went on together we had so much fun and she was right in the center of it all. She would laugh with us. She would cry with us and about us. She held us up in prayer in the good times and the bad time. She loved us and would tell me that often. She could outdo us young ones I can see her now but you know I cannot share all of our secrets as we know what happens at the retreat stays at the retreat. Just a few weeks ago she came to visit me and pray with me. I remember Wed night bible at you house with you and Harry. I loved being in your home. You and Harry meant so much to me. Words of encouragement through many tough times. My life was so blessed to have Dot and Harry in it. If my faith could be as strong, my commitment as steadfast, my prayer life unfailing then I will have reached what she taught me all these years. I can see her standing before her Lord, humble with tears running down her cheek and the Lord reaching out and telling her WELL DONE THOUGH GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT.

Eddie and Freddie,
So sorry for the sudden loss of your dear mother. She was a little "spit fire" and her spirit will live on forever in her grandchildren, great grandchildren and her great great grandchild. She was an inspiration to many.
God bless her soul!!

It was a great honor and privilege to be a part of Dots life. She was a blessing to both young and old, always young at heart and in body it seems as she showed us younger ones up many times. The love and prayers, the advice she gave is invaluable. Through the years Dot has taught me so much, how to be s Godly wife, a true friend, and how to laugh through the bad times and through it all good or bad to praise God. She will be greatly missed in the lives that all knew her but we joy in knowing she is in the presence of our Lord and enjoying a grand reunion with those gone before. May God comfort and keep you may He bring you peace in this difficult time.
