What a lovely obituary of a lovely life. Aunt Dot, I'll always remember you fondly, especially when I'm wrapped up in the afghan you made me for my wedding. May you rest in peace in the company of your son, husband, parents, and all your sisters and brothers who went before you. You were loved, and will be missed.
Love,
Your niece Michele

Mom:
Today I sit here looking at these last 14 yrs since taking ill and especially the last 9. Thinking about all the days staying with you until better days came. Your journey has been long and I couldn't be more thankful to go on this journey with you. We were each other's guardian angels through it all. You were there when I came into the world and I was there went you left this world. Thank you for praying for me and giving me peace in your absence. Thank you for loving me and my family, the many bright days of mutual friends and laughter. You were a great mom and grandma. I am most grateful for being your daughter. I am so blessed to have had you in my life. Your life was blessed and well lived. I will most remember the many days and nights of conversions I know I will cherish, laughs and quiet moments. It's time for us to fly on our own without each other but know we are always together until it's my turn to find you again. I will love you always.
