  1. Aunt Dot will be sorely missed. She always had a “Hi ya!” when she entered a room. No one made chocolate chip cookies, lady locks and pumpkin pies like her.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about you moms passing. She was a terrific person and loved so much. She will be missed.

  3. I am deeply saddened by the news of your loss. I pray that God will grant you the strength. My most sincere condolences.
