    My prayers and thoughts are with all of you and I truly feel a great personal loss with the passing of Dot to our Heavenly Father. After the time we all spent together and watching Dot & Lynn have fellowship with Evelyn & Tom, we all felt like your Mom & Dad were our second parents. We love them both just like we did our own parents and we will miss Dot just the same way.
    Dot is in Heaven with them sharing. I will cherish the moments that I had with Dot & Lynn last year and I can’t wait to see them all again.
    My love to all of you,
