We will miss you Aunt Dot! I wanted to call you and talk to you about my Dad's passing, but I waited too long! Now you are all together! I will always remember and quote you saying "love, love, love"--I believe I said that the weekend you passed away w/o even knowing that you had! You will always be remembered!

Dorothy was one of the kindest persons who was always thinking of someone else. She was positive, thoughtful, and a loving person. I remember how kind and how much she respected her mother.

I am sure that I speak for many of her nieces and nephews when I say Aunt Dot will be dearly missed. I have so many memories of spending time in her home for family gatherings and visits. I have a very fond memory of that little toy box she kept in her front closet! Rest in peace, Aunt Dot.

Dorothy was a great friend all through high school and after. She was fun, had a great sense of humor, and her friends loved spending time with her. She was maid of honor at my wedding in 1957. Through the years I've thought of her often....I know she will be missed by all who love her.

Aunt Dot had a long and wonderful life. She will forever remain in our hearts and minds. I always looked forward to going to their house because of all the love and fun that was inside with Grandma, Aunt Helen and Aunt Dot. There was nothing better then going out to their house. We will miss you always @-;---
