Expression of Sympathy Oct 30 2018 12:00 AM

When we had my mothers celebration of life i heard alotta "this was my favorite Aunt" or i was her favorite Niece. well now it is my time to say it, with no disrespect to any of my other Aunts, aunt Dot was my favorite aunt. Aunt Dot was another mother to me in my younger years, in fact she was the reason why i didnt have 2 bottom teeth for years, because when i was in a stroller she was calling my name from downstairs and i HAD to get to her, well 3 flights of stairs later i did. I so wished i would have got to see her at my mothers celebration but i didnt, another lost chance. i will miss her dearly also. RIP and fly high with the angel Aunt Dot. Love you.

This is from Dwayne Walker

Dear aunt dot,

I am truly sorry that I let life and decisions separate me from you. You are ,and will always be missed. I've reflected on the thing you instilled in me from a young age like mom told me one day I just want to relax.
Walk with jesus
Enjoy your next journey
