    Aunt Dottie, I cant believe you are gone. You were more than an aunt you were my best friend. We had some good times together. You, me, Bubba. The night you and I went and spent the night with Sheila Michelle. We all had a blast especially with her grandkids. Then just 2weeks later I came spent the night with you and you were so sick. We went the next morning and I bought your meds the doctor ordered so you could get started on them. Im missing you so much right now, but I know you are walking beside Jesus on the streets of gold and singing with the angels choir. Rest In Peace Aunt Dottie. Fly high my sweet Aunt Dottie Fly high..

      Aunt Dottie,
      I’m gonna miss you. Growing up in Carlisle, AR I have some wonderful memories with you, Charlotte, Tammy and Bubba and Uncle Charlie. You all lives out by the airport and we kids would get on the pump house roof and watch guys parachute from planes, it was so cool. My Mom ,Carolyn, brought me to your house when your kids had chicken pox to expose me. I stayed the weekend with you all but I didn’t get chicken pox. I got chicken pox in 1996 from my kids, I was 30 years old,lol. You thought that was so funny. I had so much fun at your house as a kid with your kids.
      I know that your life changed, but I’m not the person to judge you. Aunt Dottie I love you unconditionally and I know my Mom does as well. Mom was so glad she got to visit with you before you journeyed to heaven, and she loves you very much. My vision of you in heaven is beautiful, and everyone there is perfect. Tell our family “I love them all!”
      and I love you Aunt Dottie.
      Be in peace,
      Barbara Sue
