    You were my second mother and I love you as much as any son could. Through the years when you were active and after…I will always remember you. I am honored to have been there through our time together and as you took your last breath. My heart aches but I know you are in a better place…free from the physical world that bound you in the end. I will always keep your family close…today and going forward. God rest your soul and know you are loved. We will keep your memory alive as long as we live.

    Dottie was part of our family for so many years and we will miss her warmth, her sense of humor, her love. We miss her. Dick, Kevin, Alice and I are thinking of Michael, Mary and Karen and, of course, are thinking of Dottie!! A part of her will always be with us.
