Dot and my mom, Liza Wilkins, were good friends. She was a special lady. I’m sorry for your loss, but I’m picturing the reunion of these two ladies. May God’s healing comfort surround you all.

Dot was the best neighbor anyone could hope for. One example of her generosity: my son, at age 12 months, had pneumonia and vomited all over his stuffed animal at about midnight. I had to wash it, unfortunately it fell apart in the washer. There was no consoling him. Dot heard him crying and came over. She took puppy home and reconstructed him within hours. Her generosity and love had no bounds. God is celebrating her arrival.

Dot was part of a sewing group that met at the Suffolk Art Gallery, a wonderful group of women who were there every Wednesday. She was a kind, loving person with a quick laugh and hug. I know you will miss her!

When I think of Dot I see her endless smile and feel the warmth of her heart. A wonderful soul on this earth. Hugs and lots of love to all of her family.

I truly loved every moment that I spent with your mom, Lynne. Her smile and laughter are what I remember the most, along with the positive outlook on anything that we spent hours talking about. I always understood why you wanted to call and talk with her daily- she was such a blessing to anyone who knew her, especially to you. My heart is breaking for you with her loss in your and your family's life. Prayers of strength, comfort and peace, Her love and spirit with always be with you. All my love
