Dot,
You and Steve opened up your home for me a few times when I visited Amanda and Noa in TN. I will never forget your smile, warmth, and your ability to make me feel like long lost family. Your carrot cake was beyond the best I'd ever had, still to this day. You raised a Beautiful Daughter in Amanda Lyall and I know she and Noa will miss you beyond words. Thanks for being a true Tennessee Lady and raising your children with such grace. I will miss you and have since I last seen you many years ago...Fly high and spread your beautiful wings...feel that wind on your face...REST IN PEACE and always from the bottom of my heart; thanks for the Southern Hospitality... Sincerely with all the love in my heart -Himey
