Not sure what to say?

My sympathy and prayers. My heart goes out to all of you.
Dottie was always happy and smiling.
Dottie and Dick were at the top of my favorite adults!
Some of my fondest memories were Holdens and Bachs on Summit St. And your backyard for BBQs and charades.
Im sorry I wont be able to make Saturday. If youre ever in Houston please call.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. John5: 28 & 29

Sending condolences and prayers to Dot Holdens family. I worked with Dot for many years at St. Marys and we had lunch many times with our group of nurses. She was always smiling and upbeat. It was always a pleasure to be with Dot. I am so glad to have known and spent time with such a wonderful person.
