I’ll never forget when I was younger, going to Aunt Dot’s house to spend the night. And my cousin Alyssa would be there every now and then. And although she may have been too young to remember it, we had so much fun. I loved sitting with Aunt Dot at the table and just talking to her and we would always look at pictures. She was a truly blessed individual and the kindest person you could ever meet. I truly do miss my younger days at Aunt Dot’s house.
