Dear Cave Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Dots passing. She always had a smile on her face and always made me feel she was happy to see me, as I was her.
She so loved her children & their spouses. And her grandchildren were her pride & joy. My life was better for having known her.

We are sad to lose her but I know where she is and I know we will see her again.
God bless you Dottie. Till we meet again.
