Dear Dale, cousins and family, Dottie was so very special in so many ways and my personal memories go way back to a wonderful time & place in my mind's eye. I cannot be there for her service but she and all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God Bless this wonderful woman and her family.

Thinking of one and all. Cousin "Big Bobby"

My heartfelt sympathy to Dale, Tim, Becky, Rachel and their families. I will always remember this woman's kindness.

Being so far away breaks my heart during this sad time. My prayers are with all of you hugging you from afar. My Aunt was a smile.. I always remember her smile always will

My deepest sympathy to Dale and family of Dotty.  I was so sorry to hear of her passing and all of you are in my prayers. We all have wonderful memories and I will truly miss her.  God Blessyou all

Age 5 I remember when my mom and aunt Dottie put me in a rocking chair with a glass of beer and a cigar to teach me a lesson not to drink or smoke.  Got sick as a dog; however, didn't learn the lesson. You will be missed Aunt Dottie!

Dear Rachel and family,
