To the Family I want to say that Dot was such a loving and giving person. My children Chris, Rae,Dustin, and Steven loved her so much. I found her to be such a pleasure to talk to and she was so caring and a blessing to us when our Raymond passed away. She will be sadly missed but never forgotten in our hearts. May the family find peace in the Lord at this time ad may you all have comfort from God. Please know that another angel has been taken home to fill her place and watch over each of you from above. God Bless you all, Love and Prayers Christy Hunt/Cassick
