Dot and David allowed me to be apart of their family while my own was so far away. They took me in when I had nowhere to go. Treated me as their own and gave me a wonderfully great gift of love. Dot was like a mother to me always making sure I ate my veggies, giving me advice when I needed it. Allowing me to be a part of some great memories....camping, disneyworld, even just listening to her favorite music in the car...I could always count on her for an honest answer on any questions I had. Dot opened herself up to me and allowed me to know her and what made her amazingly unique and believe me...she was... Even near the end her sense of humor never failed... a memory of my own I love and I'll cherish forever. A mother and a friend I will miss you here on earth Dot but look forward till we meet again where our Lord and loved ones reside. xo

Chatting with Dot was always a joy. She had quite a memory, great stories, really good advice and she was an awesome listener. We shared quite a few of the same interests, but we especially enjoyed talking about genealogy. Dot was a sweet, interesting, caring and giving person. She is finally with her beloved David. God have Mercy on her soul and may she Rest In Peace.

Dot and I were best friends when we were young kids and we lost touch as the years went by. But one day I got a message from her saying she tracked me down thru Facebook! I was so happy to hear from her. We talked and talked and talked reliving memories good and bad. She always had a unique way of seeing things. That is one of the things I love about her. Every time we spoke I felt like we were kids again and I know that she felt that way, too. When I found out that she was sick my heart broke and I cried for her. But other than then I haven't been able to cry. She didn't want people to to that. I thank God that I was lucky enough to spend some quality time with her taking her to her treatment appointments and sitting with her one day in her room just talking then watching her as she slept. She still knew me, still talked up a storm to me, and I don't know how but I knew what she was saying.

It was always my pleasure to spend time with her. I miss her and know we will see each other again. Rest in peace, my friend, the hard part is over.

I'm so glad I got to spend time with Dot getting ready for our classmates "60" birthday bash. She was always so enthusiastic. She spent so much time creating beaver cupcakes! They were truly a work of art!
Peace and love to her family.....
