Aunt Dot, I am so sorry I didn't stop this trip home. I finally got your address and then ran out of time. Now there is no more time. I wanted to thank you for being there when I was a little girl and being so nice to me. I remember you as a loud funny lady and oddly my friends would describe me the same as you :-) I have many good memories of your house beside the cemetery...scary and fun as a kid. I pray you are at peace and pray for peace for your family and friends. I will always hold those talks as a child forever in my heart. You helped more than you know Love you Tina
