  1. Dear Patsy and Neil, I am sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I will always remember the fun times I had at your house as a kid, playing kick the can, eating bologna and cheese sandwiches, and drinking sweet tea. I remember playing cards a lot too. Where does the time go? I hope you are both doing well.

  2. Dear Buster and Patsy, I just now found out about Aunt Dot’s passing! I am so sorry for your loss, she will be sorely missed! I am sure she has already been to rainbow bridge to see her .babies (doggies and kitties) She and I had a good time together, I’ll miss her as well very much! The both of you did everything in your power to see to it that she had a good life in her latter years, and I know she would thank you for that if she could. I loved her very much!!! You both will be in my thoughts and prayers! Much love to you both!

  3. Buster & Patsy. Mon and I were saddened to hear of Dot’s passing. So many memories of her and Mr. Shinny shoes. All the kids in the neighborhood lived in their back yard. Baseball, kick the can, bike riding, skate boards, slot cars, playing in the woods wow…… We gave Dot every opportunity to hate kids but she Loved us all. She was some special neighbor, friend, and Mom. We send our love.
