What a wonderful woman...my Aunt Dot, my amazing Godparent! I celebrate knowing she is at peace and visiting with all her dear family and friends. I close my eyes and can picture her smile that could light up a room. Sad I will not make the service but know in my heart I'm there. I will miss her handwritten multiple cards catching me up on the Perry news! Love and hugs to each of you~
