RIP Dot. You were a great cousin and always treated me with respect. I wish we could have visited more often. I am grateful for your work with our heritage on the Cherokee and you urging me to join. I remember how happy you were after I joined and got my card and name.
God bless you (Morning Dew) and the entire family.

I had the privilege of taking care of dot in her last few weeks of life- She was a good friend to my dad and mom and they lived next door to each other for 25 years. Not only do I treasure my memories for those few weeks but I became good friends with her 2 neices Michelle and Melissa that stayed with Dot until her passing. Thank you for trusting me to help with Dots care during this time she will definitely be missed ❤️ Rest In Peace Dot
