    We are so sorry for your loss. Aunt Dot was such a special woman. She had a huge heart, and was the perfect combination of spunk and kindness. It was a huge loss for us when she moved to Colorado, but we were all so happy that she got to spend her remaining years with the people who meant the most to her in the world. She will always live on through memories and stories that will be passed on forever. Please know our hearts are with you during this difficult time. We love you all very much.
