Hal:
We are so sorry for the loss of your Mother. Dot was not only a great neighbor, but a wonderful person. We had many conversations in the back yards and we will never forget her charming smile.
Although we relocated a few years ago, your Mom and Dad were special friends of ours.
GOD BLESS,
Mary and Clarence Bennett

Hal, I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom and I served on lots of committees at Lakeview when you and Emily were there. Later I worked with your Dad at Cain/Sloan, Dillard’s. I enjoyed seeing them both at the C/S luncheons.
