Craig, I am so sorry about your Mother. Dot and I worked at Lewis-Gale Hospital for many years together. She was working there in 1967 when I went there and we worked together till she retired. She would give me rides to work when the weather was bad and I was afraid to drive. She was such a good friend. Craig, I know it is hard losing your Mother. You are in my prayers. Shirley Hackney

Your parents were our neighbors in Vinton, VA when we were newly weds in 1986. We loved them both and are sad to read of Dot's recent death. Peace to you at this time. Mary and Michael Czysz

Craig and family- So sorry to learn of Dot's passing. My mom was at Park Oak Grove for about a year and a half, and I would see Dot almost every time I visited. Always loved talking with her. And, the Reynolds' family always sat near you all at Thrasher. We know this is a very sad time for you all. Thoughts and prayers are with you. May great memories of your mom give you peace. Take care.
