    I am sorry for your loss. I used to work at Donalson and Dot and I would have some special talks. She is a sweet dear lady. I will miss her knowing she will no longer be with us. We will have a reunion day. You will be in thoughts and prayers. I wish I could come to the funeral but I have had surgery and not able to walk yet. Dot was very special to me.
    with Love Melissa
