It is hard to loose your parents as I have lost both of mine. It helps me to always think about what they have given and taught me over the years. I thank them for it daily and also the laughter and fun times that they shared with me. Our heart is with you and your family. Love ya Bob and Susan Wilson, Wilson Air Centeer

I remember my Mother telling me that Dottie and Grace Ward were the last of the great Southern ladies. There was only one Dottie and no one could ever have taken her place. My thoughts and prayers are with Dottie's whole family
