Dot my favorite Auntie! I can remember every summer, I would pack up my barbies, load up on a greyhound bus and come to stay with your familiy for a couple weeks. Karen and I really didn't get into too much trouble, but those are memories made to last a life time. Now I appreciate all those special times we had together! God's plan for us to create a special bond. Norm, I'll never forget the life changing advice you gave me out on the golf course, to follow my heart! Dot will be forever in our hearts! I love you!
