Dear Family,
We were truly blessed to have known Dot. She was a wonderful person and a great neighbor. Florence enjoyed her many coffee sessions and conversations. We will remember all the times we saw her in her rollers. She loved having her hair fixed. They were good friends. We both enjoyed visiting with her after your dad passed. She will surely be missed in the neighborhood. God bless you all at this time.

Cindy and Florence
