Aunt Dot was so good to us kids as we were growing up. Me, Debbie, Janet, Dewey, and Earl loved to go camping with her and Claude. She was such a good cook and shared many if her dishes with my family. Pop Huey loved her fried apple pies. I loved her egg custard pie. I will miss her. May she rest in God's arms.

Aunt Dot was a kind compassionate person. I would go visit in the summer, and we would go to Macon County fishing. No one could fry trout like Aunt Dot. By our family, she lovingly remembered and missed.
