    Bebe, Di, and family, Dot was so special. Now she is with Belton and the gang, and my Aunt Ima, and they’re probably designing a new garden in Heaven. My prayers and good thoughts are with you. Love, Mary

    Bebe, Di and family,
    Ms Dot was a great lady and I enjoyed talking with her and enjoyed working with her at school! Heaven definitely has added a special angel that is enjoying seeing her family and many friends. Memories that you will share during this difficult time will help numb some of the pain! God will carry you through these days and the future without her !

    Farewell to an old family friend whom I’ve always loved and admired so much. I know where Dot is today and who she’s with, and I am so happy for her. She was a marvelous person.


  11. Mitzi Andrea on March 11th, 2014 10:48 am

    Bebe and Family,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I always thought Miss Dot was so beautiful and sweet and the last time I saw her still felt that same way. My husband Dave only met her the one time at daddy’s funeral but you and your mom made quite an impression on him. My heart goes out to you and yours today. May God’s comfort and grace carry you through this difficult time.


  12. Robert and Cathy Davis on March 11th, 2014 7:07 pm

    The stars will shine brighter now that Dot and Belton are back together in their heavenly bodies to watch over their children and their families. Strength and love to all.


  13. George and Linda Pearce (Manteo, NC) on March 12th, 2014 10:10 am

    I hadn’t been in “Mrs. Dot’s” company much in recent years. But whenever we did meet, it was just as if we’d talked the day before. She was always so genuine and gracious – a true lady. The expression “they don’t make them like that anymore” came to mind when I heard of her passing. Our sympathies to her family and friends – especially Bebe and Di.


  14. Ana on March 12th, 2014 10:29 am

    I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. May these words give you a new hope.


  15. Diane Evans on March 12th, 2014 12:08 pm

    Bebe, Di & Family, I am so sorry for the loss of Miss Dot. She was always such a sweet lady and I know she will be missed tremendously. But I also know that she has left this world for a better place and is now safely in the arms of Jesus.


  16. Donetta Livesay on March 12th, 2014 12:40 pm

    Bebe,Bob, Kristi & all of your family I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Miss Dot. She was always a pleasure to be around and very sweet to me when I would see her at the Inn. She will be missed. Take care of each other…God bless!


  20. Brian Chadwick on March 14th, 2014 2:28 pm

    I hate that I won’t be able to be there today, but my time spent with Aunt Dot has been special. I will always smile when thinking back on those memories and I know she is in a better place now. It is amazing how much of an impact some people can make on your life, and I am proud to have had her in mine. Rest easy Aunt Dot. Love ya.
