My best to her family and especially Scott. Dottie was my dear friend, a consummate organist and pianist with whom I enjoyed many hours of musical endeavors. I will always cherish her friendship, her wit and mostly her loving enthusiasm for life and friends. Rest in peace Dottie.

You and your Mom are in my thoughts and prayers. I am so happy to have worked with your Mom using her donation in honor or her Mother to begin the butterfly garden at Our Lady Of The Church. She told me many times how much it meant to her and that you both visited often. Know that she will be missed and loved by us all in Joyful Noise Choir. Nobody has ever been able to play "We Are Called" exactly like she could. We sang it Saturday night and there were many tears shed. Safe travels home. Hope to see you soon.
Love and prayers,

Dottie was the pianist/organist for the choir I sing with for many years, the Joyful Noise Folk Group. She also played for my eldest daughter's wedding. I loved Dottie dearly and I'll miss her. My condolences, Scott, on the passing of your mother. My heart is with you during this time.

Scott, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was such a sweet person and everytime I hear "We Are Called", I will think of her with warmth in my heart and a smile on my face. God bless you Scott. You are in my prayers.

Love, Maggie Hunt (OLH Joyful Noise choir)
