Sorry to hear about Dot. I have fond memories of her and all of the Warren Family. All of the Warren kids were like my sisters and brothers. When I was a kid I always loved it when you all would come to spend a week with us in Alcoa. I also remember those good times at Edisto Island.

So sorry for your loss, but happy that Dot has achieved her reward. It was wonderful that you all brought her to the EHS '57 reunion in Aug. It was good to see her and hopefully good that she could visit with us. She was a special classmate and I always enjoyed seeing her.

Tonia, Cathy, & Jeff,
I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a fine lady. I always think back to the Ftn City ballpark days & remember your Mom in the concession stand with my Mom. I can see them laughing & talking. Always hold dear to your memories as you go through this. God's with each of you. Prayers are with each one of you.
