I moved into the home across the street from Joe and Dot less than a year ago. Dot was the second person I had the pleasure of meeting, Joe was the first. Joe gave me a warm welcome to the neighborhood and Dot welcomed me with her captivating smile. I knew Dot for less than a year, I wish it had been longer. Such a lovely lady full of love for Joe, her family and her Lord and Savior. You will be missed Sweet Dot.

Dot was an inspiration to me. She was humorous, loving and kind to all. She was definitely a Loving wife to Joe and loved to talk about all her family, and how they were all blessed by Jesus.
She will be missed and then soon, we will have a great reunion!
Until then, your loving sister in Christ, Doris E.
