To know Dot (Mom, to me), is to love her and I have loved her from the first day I met her some twenty-plus years ago. Seeing Mom the first time, I couldn’t help but marvel at this strikingly beautiful and stylish woman! Here was a woman who was independent, owned a small business, and held a full time job—so very wise and resourceful beyond her years!! Her style and fashion flair was eclipsed only by her warm heart and fierce love of her family-her children and grandchildren. I don’t know anyone in their golden years that embraced and made the most of their life like Mom did. She made everyday count! What a lesson for me and for all of us! Mom loved me like one of her own and for that I am forever grateful.
