So sorry to hear of Dot's passing. I haven't seen Dot in a long time but will always remember her as a great Sunday School teacher and MYF leader at Central United Methodist Church.

I worked with Ms. Dot at Video King when I was 20 years ago. She was great friends with Ms. Helen, and was one of the sweetest people I'd ever met. She always had a kind word to say, and a message about Jesus to share. I loved her. I moved and we lost touch.....RIP Ms. Dot

Susan, I am so sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. Your Mother was one of the sweetest women I have ever known. She made an everlasting impression on my life as she taught me at Sunday School when we all went to church at
Central Methodist. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
