My favorite memory of my Aunt Dot is coming out to CA to visit her. We had so much fun swimming in her pool. Once we move to CA she took my family in and we lived with her for a while. You were my favorite aunt on my moms side of the family. Once my mom moved to Utah with me, we would drive to CA to visit her. I loved this. We would her lunch, play BINGO and just hang out. I will miss those days hanging out. You were one tough cookie. Love and miss you Aunt Dot💔
