Ginger, Bennie and Mike, my heartfelt sympathy is with all of you in the passing of your beautiful Mom and my favorite Aunt. She was a delightful lady to be around and always made my sister, Brenda and me feel so very welcome when we came to visit. We loved staying at Aunt Dot's in her big white plantation house. I have such fond memories of her when I was growing up -- I remember thinking how beautiful she was when we were all at Grandmother Hamilton's old home place...tall and slender. I know this is a sad day for all of you, but she is definitely enjoying where she is now and she has been reunited with her wonderful husband, and your Dad, B.L. I just want you to know I wanted to come to her funeral so badly, but we just couldn't work out the logistics at the last minute. I hate we live so far away. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you and your families. Love to all, Debbie

Bennie, Mike & Ginger and all the rest of the family: I was so very saddened to hear that my beloved Aunt Dot had passed away. I told Bennie "She went to sleep on earth and woke up in Heaven!" She was a sweet lady with such a sense of humor. I'm so glad I got a lot closer to her in the last 10 years. My sister Deb and I wanted to come to Eutaw but it was just too hard to do. Our hearts are with you even though our bodies are not. Much love, Brenda (my husband Bobby sends his love and prayers too.....he thought a lot of the entire Abrams Family. Uncle B.L. and Aunt Dot did a fine job of raising their family!)
