  6. How I will miss her sitting behind me in church. Her easy laugh and sense of humor will be missed. A lovely lady!

  7. Please accept our deepest sympathy. Dot will be fondly remembered by us as a part of ‘the gang’ that included my (Gary’s) Dad and Mom – Pete & Ruth Garner – and many others. I used to tease them about being ‘The 3 Brothers Posse’. She was a caring and lovely lady, and we will miss her.
