My deepest love and sympathy to Kay and Connie and Billy and their families. Aunt Dot was a beautiful person not only physical but inside too. I have many fond memories of our life growing up with our families being so close. I cherish our visit a few years ago when we took time to have a few hours of laughter, love and memories. Love to you all. I hope you can view this picture.
