    Our deepest sympathy to Auntie Dot’s whole family. We are unable to travel from Florida but want all to know that you are in our prayers. Auntie Dot was a very special lady and a friend to all. Always a smile on her face that made you feel special. She will be missed by so many people, but we have to know that she is smiling now at all her family that went before her. That is love all around!

    Bonnie, Tom, David and Tim we were so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was such a special lady in our neighborhood and all of us who had the privilege of knowing her loved her. We have such great memories of being at the Ireland house.
