I’ve been trying to find the words for over a week now, it still doesn’t feel real. I miss you Dot! As a bonus mom, you have been stitched into the fabric of who I am today. I have more memories I can count and I can’t choose just one to settle on. I’m going to be selfish and remember them all. Your laugh, that I will miss the most!
I know you are looking down on all of us, laughing, smiling and cheering us on! Make sure to keep an extra eye on dad, a piece of him left with you that day. A piece of all of us.
You will never be forgotten. Love you so much ❤️

I love you Aunt Dot!! I will always remember your sweet smile every time I saw you. I remember the first time I met you with little Samantha and Dakota many, many years ago. I love how you would say good morning sunshine every time I came by my moms in the morning. You were always so positive and happy and I will miss that. You always gave me good advice and always listened. I love you and miss you very much!! And I will visit and check up on uncle Steve and Dakota and make sure they’re ok. Love you always..... ❤️

As I sit and think about all of the possible things to write, my mind becomes riddled with flashbacks of our old conversations and the thousands of 8ball facebook games played. Some short and some long, some happy and some sad but always with a neverending amount of love and support. I remember the day Dakota introduced us, I was scared and shy nonetheless, but from the first time we spoke to the last your voice and laugh always brought warmth and eased any other emotion around. I will never be able to truly thank you for the advice you gave over the years or for giving birth to the best friend that I could ever ask for but I can promise you that I will do my best to support him and family as much as is needed. Rest In Peace Dorothy, you sure have earned it. You are already so very much missed.

Aunt Dorothy you always had a gentle calmness to you. A warm ness. Life isn’t always fair. Yet you always smiled. Siting with Samantha yesterday we looked at the picture I took of you watching her give birth to your first grandchild. The look on your face showed so much happiness. That’s the memory I will always cherish. Rest assured that you can indeed rest in eternal peace. I will make sure Uncle Steve is not alone. I will step in and feel the void of the silent car rides Sam now has and have her call me. You were loved. You were valued. You matter. It was my honor to have you in my life.

Aunt Dot, I’ll miss your face and your kind soul always asking how I’ve been and always ending our conversation with I love you even though we haven’t seen each other in many years. I know your with our savior and at peace now but you have left us too young. I will think about you often and keep you in my heart. Bless you aunt Dorothy.

Oh my heart I miss you so. When you was up here in Meadville living we would message each other and meet up for coffee down at the Market house. You always told me that I was going to be happy for a long time to come. How i always second guessed myself as a parent and you would always tell me that I was doing a pretty damn good job. Oh how I wish that I could have one more cup of coffee with you. Fly high my angel. I love you.

I love you mama! I am going to miss our phone calls almost daily. I am going to miss our corny jokes on the phone. You were my biggest supporter and always made sure to tell me how proud you were of me. I wish more than anything that I could have one more conversation with you, hear you say “I love you” one more time. I love you so much and I will miss you more than anything in this world. Watch over us and say hi to grandma for me! I love you mama!

" It's knowing that this can't go on forever. Likely one of us will have to spend some days alone. Maybe we'll get fourty years together, but one day I'll be gone and one day you'll be gone."
Till we meet again. Love you baby Sister. You will be missed.
