I knew her as Tom’s Aunt Dot. I always thought she knew what was important in life. She used her skills to pull family and friends together, to make them look forward to gatherings. I remember the beautiful flower arrangements, the tasty rolls and pies, Uncle GP’s barbecue sauce, and her kindness. I picture Aunt Dot forever busy, making earth a heavenly home. Thank you for sharing her with your friends.
