Don and family, I hope you find strength in the memories of Dottie. Almost 60 years of marriage is a testament to love few people have achieved. I have much admiration for your union. Take care and be well.

Your cousin.

Henry - I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Donny and Mark both told me. I'll keep the family in my prayers and light a candle for her at my church, St. Mary's of the Mill. Sheryl DeWalt

I have been a friend of Dotties since grade school. I am so sorry she has left us. She was truly a great person that I enjoyed so much. I will surely miss her and our conversations. Praying for her husband Don and all of her family. Wishing I could be there in their time of need.
