    I was heartbroken when I learned of Aunt Dot’s passing. She, Uncle Charles, and all of you were such a part of my life growing up. I grew closer to Aunt Dot as an adult. She could always make me laugh! I enjoyed every minute I spent with her. I will miss her greatly. My prayer for all of you is that your sorrow will soon turn to warm and loving memories.
