Dot – you will be remembered as a mother-in-law full of life and love of your family and friends. I thank the Lord for you and all you did for us. As a Nana – you went over and beyond for Rachel and Seth. One of my friends reminded me of this verse, 2 Corinthians 5:8 “We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” I know you are resting the in arms of our Heavenly Father, our Lord now and you deserve this rest. We will miss you greatly.
Curtis, Kelly & Family, Sorry to learn of your loss and during this time continue to celebrate her life as she has you’ll to carry out her legacy even more. All though I didn’t know her personally, i heard many stories at Fort Belvoir from her proud son and it’s apparent she’s more than the average woman by the son she made and the impressions he has made on family, friends, and strangers-Hoot got it from an apparent good upbringing (and Kelly). I’m certain her touch is carried out through grandchildren and everyone she met. God bless each of you and always reach out to your friends during these tough times but we pray for each of you to know she’s comfortable.
Thoughts & prayers are with Curtis & the whole family. Cherish your memories.
Curtis, Kelly, Rachel & Seth, so sorry for your loss. You all are in our thoughts and many prayers.
The Hosey’s, James & Vanessa
Ronald, Janice and Chris will miss you Dot!
Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family members.
Hoot, my condolences to you and your family. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers. I hope in all other aspects of your life, that you are doing well. Be safe.
Thinking about the family during this difficult time.
Dot spent almost as much time with us as she did at home! She was always a delight to be around, had a wonderful sense of humor and was a great cartoonist! I hadn’t seen her for several years, but just knowing she is no longer here is heartbreaking! Such a wonderful friend, and she will be missed!
