So sorry to hear this news. Dot was a big part of my family. She and my mother, Helen James, used to spend time together visiting and doing crafts. In the fall, Dot would come to Mom's house and they would spend a day, sometimes two, making crafts for Christmas gifts and decorating. Dot was a lovely, caring lady. May God help you with your sorrow.
