Very sorry to hear of Dot's passing. I'll always remember looking for her eye glasses, reaching under the bed for her phone charger, and asking if she called Harold that morning. Dot would always put a smile on my face with her wit and humor. She will be greatly missed by everyone who was fortunate enough to have known her. My prayers and sympathies to the family.

I will miss Dot more than I can even say. She was the sweetest most loving person and loved her family so much; she told me about how she loved her family everyday at work. I will never forget when I bought her the pink hat and gloves that matched that she had been wanting, and everyday after she told me how much she loved them. I pray for her whole family as this is so sad and such a hard time for anyone who knew her!

We were sorry to learn of “Dots” death. As a member of our Taylors First Baptist Deacon Shepherding Committee, it was my honor to pray for and send cards to her. Regrettably, we were not able to make personal visits during the pandemic. My wife Judy and I will keep your extended family in our prayers and for our Lord's comfort.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
