Dottie was a joy to be around! She was so caring and full of wisdom! She was smart and a much stronger and braver person than most know! She was a Godly woman who sincerely loved the Lord and wanted to be a light to the world! I admired her faith and love for others! She was a wonderful example to all who knew her! She was loved by so many and she will be missed by all! Old South will never be the same without her! I know she is in heaven dancing before her Heavenly Father joined by all who have passed before her! Love you and miss you deeply Dottie Lou!!!
