  1. With love and sympathy to you on the loss of your beloved aunt. I sincerely wish I had gotten to meet her. May God bless you during this sad time and may sweet memories help to sustain you.

  2. I came to know Dot several years ago when I sent a change of address for my dad. He and Mom had been at Anglers Green a few short years in the 1980s. Dot wrote me the loveliest email about my mom who had passed in 1987. We kept up a correspondence and I knew how sad she was when her son died. I knew when my emails bounced back what had happened and finally searched her obituary today. She was a vibrant smart strong and compassionate woman. I am grateful for the time I knew her and wished it had been sooner. Bless you all for the care she allowed you to give her and in your celebration of her very full life. Holly Whittaker
