We were so sorry to learn of Dot's passing. We were neighbors for years in Clarksville.
So sad to lose so many longtime friends but we still have the special memories of Dot and her family.
Our love and deepest sympathy to all the family

Sharon and Family, Dottie was a special lady I have not know her long ,but in the time I knew her I fell in love with her. She was a very giving person and would share anything she had. She was a fun lady always liked to have a good time.
She will be missed by many. You all will be in my prayers
