Dot loved old country music, Elvis Presley, bright red geraniums, collecting angels, the Kansas City Royals, kitty cats, all things chocolate, her many special friends, the years she spent in Cameron, and above all her family. She always said there was nothing better than time spent with family. You be a good girl granny! We love you so very much.
