Dot was one of my all time favorite woman , she always kept me amazed at her enthusiasm for life . It was fun to hear her talk Duke sports . I will miss her but know she is with our Lord . She always ended our phone conversations with a ” love you ” .

We will miss Dot. She was a great neighbor and one tough old bird. We thought she’d out-live us all. Our Dixie Dog already misses greeting Dot in her garage on our morning walks. Dix still looks up there expectantly.

We are so sorry for your loss and we know that she was always there for the family. We will miss her as a neighbor of many years and as a friend to us. We will miss seeing her “speeding” down the street and mowing her own yard! Our thoughts are with you all.

Susan & Paul White
