    Mel, Craig and family, very sad to see Dot has passed. Dot was an amazing person in more ways than one. I know she will be truly and sadly missed. Just remember when someone you love becomes a memory...those memories become treasures. Hold close to your heart all of the memories that you all shared. RIP Dot

    “TO the Families: My Sister was an extraordinary person who truly loved the Lord. She enjoyed the life God gave her. Her laugh was memorable and what beautiful eyes. She will never be forgotten. Her spirit will live on in her Family and everyone she knew. She is now in the arms of her Savior and finally resting in peace. May The Lord Bless You And Keep And Give You Peace. Love David And Julia West”
