We will dearly miss Aunt Dotty's quick wit, extraordinary view of the world and the love she had for her family. Whenever Rob thinks of Aunt Dotty, he can hear her saying, "Oh Little Robbie." We were fortunate that our children were able to take Aunt Dotty and Uncle Jim to lunch in 2009. Unfortunately, it was the last time we saw her. We are so sorry for the grief everyone is going through, but have peace in knowing that Aunt Dotty has a smile on her face as she watches over you... Rob, Charleen & Family
