Will dearly miss my adopted mom, Dot. She was an inspiration to me and I am thankful for the time I was able to spend with her. She cheerfully accepted my request to adopt her and laughed each time I addressed her as "Mom Dot." I know she is rejoicing in heaven and I can't wait to see her again when I get there. Sending my sympathies to her family.
