    Dot and I were “double sisters”, both in P.E.O. and Delta Kappa Gamma. We have been friends for a long time. She was so loving and kind. I enjoyed the times we had together. I will really miss her.

    What a sweet lady Ms. Dot was. Jim was my boss years ago at TE Moor and I got to know her. Before she moved to Frisco, I would see her at the Lamar football games. RIP Ms. Dot and I know you have enjoyed reuniting with Jim. Prayers for the family. Much love.
