I had the pleasure of know "Dot" by working with her at the Department of Voc Rehab. Never met a stranger always brought cheer when you walked in the door at VOC REHAB. No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. But take comfort in knowing that she is now resting in the arms of our Lord. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

To the family, my heart ached when I was told about my friend's departure. We had a love that never lost it's savor. It never mattered how long it had been since we greeted one another, our love was always the same. God knows what is best for us, yes, I know that. It just chokes me up knowing she is no longer with us. All I can say is, I'll miss my buddy,and I promise my love for her will never end. I know she is just asleep. Oh my God, on that great getting up day. Hallelujah!!!!!!
