    Dear Peanut and family,

    It was indeed a shock to read of the loss of our dear friend, Dot, when we opened our e-mail this morning. Dot was a special lady, so engaging and a loyal friend to us both. We will miss our friend Dot Davis, but regrettably, we will not be able to attend the services. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of this special lady and long-time friend, Jean’s bridge companion for so many years.

    Our deepest sympathies and condolences from,

    Aunt Dottie will always be remembered as a lovely and gracious lady. A true Texas belle, she will be so missed. We are better for having her in our family for all of these years. All God’s blessings to Peanut and all the rest of the family.

  11. My Aunt Dot…she is so special to me and I will always remember her with love and affection. She has such a sweet heart and I always looked forward to being with her. I can remember when Connie and I went to her house in Bryan and stayed a week. She always made me feel so special and I will truly miss her. The kindness and love she always showed to me will truly be missed. My heart goes out to Billy and Uncle Peanut and I will pray for your peace and comfort. She will always live on in our hearts and I know she and daddy are "cuttin up" right now. I love you Aunt Dot.
