Miss Myrna, Wayne, Paige, Teresa, and Candy, Our hearts are saddened by the loss of Dot. You are in our prayers. You all helped raise Kelsey and she always loved doing things with Dot and Tristan-being that they were the "older girls". We know she is at peace now and we hope that gives you all comfort. Even though we know you would rather have her here with you, God needs her to look after His smallest of angels in Heaven. She will do a wonderful job just as she did on earth. We will miss her too.
