I am so sad to hear the news of Dot's passing yesterday,
February 6, when Garry happened to call. But I know she's in a place where there is no pain and no suffering, only peace.
She was always so much fun to be around, and always easy to talk to. My heartfelt condolences to her children and grandchildren.
