Karen, our Deepest sympathies to you and your family. I remember the special friendship that Dot had with JoAnne and I know that Dot meant a lot to all of the family. We enjoyed visiting her in Raleigh and she was never without a smile, witty conversation and a hug. She was a very special lady and will always be remembered. Oh, lets not forget that she loved her baseball and the Braves.
