    I am so sorry for your loss. Ms Dot took care of me for the 5 years I lived and worked in West Point. She was funny, kind, giving, and so full of life. I have a wonderful photo of her from my wedding which means the world to me. One of my best memories is of her fried chicken and fresh corn meals she would cook for me. Was she ever a wonderful Southern cook.
    Ms Dot made the world a better place.
