Grandma Dot was a very special person and it was a privilege to know her and to share in the grand parenting.

Condolences to the entire family. I will always remember Dot clapping her hands when listening to Tony Quinn's music and always asking me for a little push to her chair in the dinning room. RIP Dot.

I wish you well during these trying times and please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all. I think of you folks from time to time and hope to reconnect at some point. Take care and keep the Faith!
