    Dear Greg and family:
    I am deeply saddened to read today of your loss of Dot….having lost Patsy 7 years ago, I truly understand the hurt that each of you is experiencing at this sad time in your lives…I continue to contend that “regardless of age or condition of health, we are never ready to say BYE to those we love” and it holds true each day…My thoughts, prayers, love and blessings are sent your way today as I remember the good times we shared in our earlier lives…

    Thank you so much R. O.! It’s been so long since we’ve seen you. Grateful for your kind words.

    Dot and Greg have been a part of my life for over 30 years. Through our friendships with Susan, Rick, Kathy, David and Julie, we have spent many times together in the same places. Many church services, wedding showers, weddings, baby showers, birthday parties, and several beach trips and probably more. Dot was sassy and sweet, she enjoyed life and I will miss her. Her service was so sweet and I enjoyed all the pictures. Love and comfort for all of you during this time. Heart, Trisha

    Katherine Kobrin says:

    Aw Trish…thank you so so much. Yes so many memories of all of us over the past 30+ years. I wouldn’t trade for anything! Memories are powerful. I’m so grateful for all of the ones we all share. Love you my friend❤️


    Was sorry to see that Dot has passed. So proud to call her my friend.
    Sending you and your family my condolence and prayers. May GOD bless you and keep you in HIS arms as you travel this path.
