I learned of the death of "Ms" Dot a couple of hours before the funeral today. Maner had an appointment with a physical therapist who was coming from Atlanta at 3:30 PM to our home and I could not find a "sitter" to be with him while I was away. I loved Ms. Dot and her happy personality! What a joyous, sweet, lovely, lady!! The members of her family are dear to Maner and me. I have never known a more kind, loving, family. What a safe, wonderful, home Uncle Hugh and Aunt Gladys provided for me that first year that I worked away from home in Atlanta! Much love to Nita, Catherine, and Walter. All of you will be in our thoughts and prayers. Maner and Marjorie and Family
