I am so sorry to learn of Dot's passing but like to think she is with Shirley catching up on news! This would make them both happy. I never met Dot that she didn't tell how much she misses Shirley!
You will miss this dear lady but be comforted in knowing she is at peace with her heavenly father. Hugs to You all!

We were so saddened to learn of Dot’s passing. We just watched the wonderful tribute video. It is unfortunate that We never got to know your Family, and what a lovely Family it is. What great memories.
When we leave this world our Family will be the only treasure we leave behind. You and Dot created a very loving one and with great grand children to boot. How special.
Our thoughts are with you and we pray the blessings you have created will comfort you in the days ahead.
