My thoughts and prayers go out to the Hasselbring family. Seeing all the wonderful moments shared with her family brings to mind the words found in Proverbs 31:27,28: “She watches over the activity of her household,And the bread of laziness she does not eat. Her children rise up and declare her happy;Her husband rises up and praises her.” Throughout her life she demonstrated a life of self sacrifice, deep love and appreciation for others. Dot also took time out for young ones by her service in Sunday school. She deeply valued bible principles that guided her through a joyous full life next to her husband. She set a great example that her family can imitate. She will be missed by all.
