Dot was a special person and it was great to see her when Zeida or Roy had gatherings. I always appreciated the way that she and my mother got along. They would usually sit together and share memories and comments; Dot was always straight forward and she would let you know what she thought about something. I enjoyed talking to her a great deal. I understand why Zain, Zeida, and Tim grew up to be such fine adults with a mother like Dot. She will be missed.
