I always admired Aunt Dot for taking care of John and herself and the "business of life." She was an independent woman early in her life by moving to Charlotte into her own apartment and establishing a life before she met Glenn. Her independence had to be put to the test after she lost Glenn too early. But she rose to the task and raised her son to be a responsible, kind person. And she took care of herself and her home until illness took her away from all that. It was an honor to know her.
