    Your Mom and Dad were Emeline Liacos & Arthur Liacos's friends. They went traveling together. Emeline has been writing back and forth with your mom for a while now, she is 97 and wanted to send her condolences. Emy is the last of their "friend group" and felt bad she could not come to the services. Her Daughter, Susan Amor. Sorry for your loss.

    Paula and Jimmy , I am so sorry for the loss of Aunt Dottie. She was the greatest aunt anyone could ever have .I am so grateful for the visits I had both as a child , adult and most of all in the past couple of years .when I saw your mother most recently she was still reading a book every few days and she only wanted James Patterson and only his writings ! She was awesome my last visit we sat for almost 2 hours and I asked her about how she met your father she took the time we had to tell me her about that time as and her life as a young girl . Her memory was sharper than ever. I am so grateful to have had her in my life what a Angel of a woman may she rest in piece . Love Kelly
