Grandma Dot was such a special lady. Always a friendly smile and a kind word. I was so lucky to have known her and will cherish all the memories!

From the Cowboys and Indians make-believe games to the long pool days and many summer trips, I consider myself blessed to have been able to create a lifetime full of memories with my grandmother. I hope everyday that I was able to provide her a portion of the happiness that she gave to me as a child and an adult. She will forever be my hero and her memory will live with me for the rest of my life.
