Joyce and family, so sorry to here of Dot's passing. When we all worked at Creighton, many, many moons ago, Dot was always a neat dresser and a beautiful lady even when you rejected some of her work. Dot would smile and you didn't know if she was gritting her teeth or thinking you are messing up my production. (Lol). Praying our Heavenly Father will embrace you all in His arms and provide strength and comfort to you all during this difficult time.
With Heartfelt Sympathy
