  2. Our hearts are broken over the passing of Aunt Dot. Aunt Dot has always held a special place in my heart as Uncle Dick does. I will always have the memories of staying with them in my younger days and visiting them over the years. I am happy Aunt Dot is reunited with Uncle Dick, I will always think of them and miss them everyday. Love, Kenny and Anne
