    Dottie was one of a kind! You never had to wonder what she was thinking, you only had to ask her and she would tell you. I pray peace and comfort to the loved ones she has left behind. Until we meet again on the other side Dottie, may you now truly hear the golden bells and take a ride in the good old gospel ship far beyond the skies.
