    Dottie was only known to me through her daughter Janie. I work with this wonderful lady. She spoke about her mom often in the past few years. A spit fire (full of herself for those not from the south) for sure. I wish I could have met her. I know I would have loved her ! She seemed to be just like Janie ! My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and close caregivers she had. Remember this: "memories are forever and can't die or be taken away". They are yours, so rely on them to make you smile about this wonderful lady who had a full life.
