I will always remember Dottie and Jim as the sweetest couple. After meeting them they took me in as one of their own. I met them in 1993, and they both immediately showed me love. Jim always asking Dottie to feed me because I was too skinny, and Dottie wouldn’t let me go without eating! ...
I will always remember Dottie and Jim as the sweetest couple. After meeting them they took me in as one of their own. I met them in 1993, and they both immediately showed me love. Jim always asking Dottie to feed me because I was too skinny, and Dottie wouldn’t let me go without eating! Dottie always had a kiss and a hug for me. I want to remember her smiling and enjoying herself. I will miss her a lot. Much love to Dee, Sis, Ruth and Ginny, whom I call part of my family. Mikey and are deeply sorry for this tremendous loss. Our love to you.
