Ms. Dot, What a treasure. She was momma to everyone in the neighborhood when I was little. Spent many an afternoon at her house with Susan growing up. She always had a fresh baked cake to share with anyone who stopped by. What a great reunion it must have been in Heaven when she arrived, getting to see Tim and Sam again. Love you now and always, Ms. Dot.

Dottie was my Mom's favorite. They always sat together at the Hilton reunions,so that they could share old times of when they were kids. Dottie was a joy,and all of us will miss her.
