Oh, how I wish I had a memory of Auntie Dot. We had never met in person but through LeeLee and Facebook I have come to realize that I certainly missed out on knowing an amazing woman. My sincere condolences to all who loved her.

In Memory of my Aunt Dot --

I loved our near-weekly visits when I was a kid -- extended families growing up together -- aunts, uncles, cousins, even without blood relation.
I loved when the visit was at Rosewood Drive, where you always had a special treat for me, like the wonderful, cold milk from the special dispenser in the fridge and the Goosner cakes made by Uncle Ken at Christmastime.
I loved how you were my personal "Queen of England" the year I studied in the U.K. -- and forever more -- how you wrote me wonderful, funny letters every month that kept me close to home no matter where I was in the world.
And I loved how as the years wore on, you continued to love on me, my wife, and my children, even from afar.

Most of all, I loved YOU, Aunt Dot, and will miss you very much. You close a chapter on a generation of lifelong friends and family that have shaped my life. You were the regal one among them all!

Your nephew, Christopher
