  • Hi Vicki and Bill: We visited with you briefly Friday evening. We are so sorry for your loss.

    In going through some older photos, came across some of both your parents. When I accomplish the task, I will get the photos to one of you to share. There are some really nice candid photos of them both.

    If I do not get them to you before you both have to return to your homes, please email me a mailing address where we could send them.

  • Vicki and Bill,

    I will always remember the sound of your mom’s laughter. It was warm and full of joy – and that is the way I remember her as a kid growing up across the street from you.

    God Bless you Dottie.

  • Dear Vicki,

    I was sad to hear your mom passed away. I would be at the funeral, but I am in a training all day on Saturday. Let me know what I can do. I’m sure it has been difficult to be so far away. Patricia

  • I wish to extend my deepest sympathy to Dottie’s Son, Daughter, and grandson.

    I became friends with Dottie a few years ago and our monthly visits became something I looked forward to. She was so fiesty and loved so much to talk about her grandson. I remember so many wonderful stories she shared with me. The last thing I did for her was rub her feet after she was in the hospital. I always called her “twinkle toes”. She will truly be missed.
