  1. My condolences on the loss of your mom. Dottie was such a kind woman and I loved seeing and talking with her. I know you will miss her but she is now with her Joe.

  2. Ms. Dottie was a wonderful person. A true southern lady who loved her family, hallmark stores and drinking coke. She will be missed. Thanks for always being so kind to Neal and I and the twins. RIP Ms. Dottie.
