"Mrs. Dottie, I have been blessed to have you as part of our life.  You and your family have welcomed me with the warmest welcome. But most of all I remember the SMILES. Everytime time I saw you, no matter how you felt or what was going on you always had the most beautiful smile.  You have passed that on to your children because they always have a smile to brighten anybody's day.
Love and miss you and thanks again for being part of my life."

"Dear Miss Dottie, You were my second mom. I will miss you and I love you. You always did everything you could for us. You gave your time and love to everyone you knew. You always helped with the Mokana things we had to do and made it fun. You  had the BEST CHRISTMAS parties ever and made my favorite tuna sandwiches when I asked for them.Time to play canasta with Joan and the rest of the gang they were missing you. So glad that Dianne brought you to the party so our family could be with you one last time.
Love Always,
