“Dear Mom, there is a special place I hold for you, so dear; Because you mean more to me, with every passing year. I remember your loving care of me, for busy days on end; And I thank God that you’ll always be, my Mother, and dear friend. Dear Lord, please bless my mom today, and fill her heart in all her ways, and guide her from above. In Jesus’ name Amen.”

I was sorry to hear about Dottie's passing. We were great neighbors years ago and spent many nights playing Trivial Pursuit and sitting at the old Village Inn drinking coffee. I send my deepest sympathy to her family. May God bless you and give you comfort.
