My favorite memory of Auntie Dottie was when I visited her in Florida. We had a lot of time to talk and laugh. She was a very brave and strong woman. Auntie wasn’t afraid of holding nothing back. That’s what I liked the most about her. I will truly miss her for the rest of my life. I will think of her and pray for her till the day I die. Love you Always, Auntie Dororthy.
