I am so sorry to learn of Dot's death. She and Leon had been treasured neighbors during my childhood years on Raleigh Road. They spent many a Christmas Eve with my family at Julian's Restaurant on West Broad. Dot gave me my first fulltime job at was then known as the Industrial Commission of Virginia. She was a most patient and forgiving boss with my less than stellar typing skills. Though it has been years since I have seen "Dockie" I will always remember her quick smile and dry sense of humor. I know Leon is glad for their reunion.
