  1. You and Robert were very special to me. Hug him for me. I cant believe your gone. I love and will miss you very much. Rip my dear friend.

  2. Dot you will be miss i love working with you at Ashlad you alsway made me laugh love you see you one day

  3. I miss you more than words can explain. You played such an important role in my life and I am so thankful God picked you to be my “adopted” grandmother. There is no one in the world like you. You touched so many lives and truly allowed God to shine through you. I miss you and look forward to the day that we get to see each other again.

  4. I was blessed the first day I started working at Ashland when I heard a sweet southern voice say, “Hey honey, how’s your day going?” I knew then that Dot was a lovely lady with a fun and positive attitude, yet sometimes ornery. I found Dot again when hired at Univar, “Hey baby doll, what are you doing here?” Dot was one of the most unselfish, joyful people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. Dot’s engaging persona was magnetic, she knew no strangers. Dot, I will miss your caring and generous ways, your fried turkeys, those gardening days of swapping bulbs and plants (anyone else have iris from her garden). Rest in peace my “darling”.

  5. So sad to hear of your passing. You will be greatly missed Dot. So thankful for your friendship and I know your family will be at peace now that you are with Robert again. Love you.
