Dot saw me sitting alone in church and invited me to sit with her. That was about 15 years ago. She always saved a sit for me in Sunday class also. I would help her at times by taking her to different doctor's appointments and we'd have lunch afterward. She will be missed.

My deepest sympathy to the family. Dot and I were classmates at Bennett and shared lots of great memories. God bless you.
