When I think of your mother, first I think of that smile, then that southern drawl, then her always sharing her memory of her playing Doug in a skit at school, and then. . .
I think of you. You and your mother—the absolute kindness, respect and real love between the two of you. How blessed both of you were by that relationship, and how blessed you will always be, Honey.
I will miss her. Friends, family will miss her. Every holiday will miss her. But all of us will be inspired to smile every single time we remember Dottie Hetzel—for the memories she gave us and for our understanding that our own lives are blessed by having known that fabulous lady.

This message is especially for Honey, though I know so many friends and family are going to feel this loss. Honey, your mom always treated us, your coworkers, with such grace and hospitality. I can’t say anything to make this easier for you, but know Ed and I are lifting you and your family in prayer. What a wonderful legacy she leaves in you, as you are just as kind and hospitable as your mom. Hugs to you sweet Honey!

Oh the memories we have around that beautiful dining room table, with all the glorious holiday decor, whether it be Easter, Christmas, St. Patrick's day or a birthday. The ultimate hostess. Thanks so much for such wonderful memories. You will be missed by so many.
Your friend, Sue Valenti
