  4. My deepest sympathy to the family. I feel such a lost. It feels like losing my own grandmother again. No more hugs, or hot cider chats. The world feels like such an empty place without her.

    Robin, Rick and family. Dot will be missed. I have enjoyed our conversations and the times we’ve spent together. God bless each of you and give you comfort and peace.
