Mrs. Dot was an incredibly sweet and kind hearted woman. What a true blessing it has been to know her. My husband, Jon Morton, was lucky enough to know her for the majority of his life as his mom Sara was one of Mrs. Dot's nearest and dearest friends. When Jon and I started dating, that's when sweet Dot came into my life. She accepted me immediately and showed me as much love as she showed Jon. She will be deeply missed but never forgotten! Her sweet heart will live on through the many memories those who loved her share. Our condolences to the family...thank you for sharing this amazing woman with us.

Dot always had a smile for everyone. She is one of the reasons I have lived in Pontotoc for 20 years. She was on the search committee that brought our family to WHBC!! So I would have to say she played a huge part in shaping my family. David and I came here with two young boys and to date we have two dnl's and 5 grands! Thank you Dot for for playing a huge part in our lives!
