Memma and Papa are together again in the Lord's presence. They married on her 16th birthday then went to Church. Memma is a faithful and good servant of the Lord (all her life). She is the most beautiful, peaceful, most kind, and loving woman I've ever met. How blessed we are to be in her family. She was an excellent cook and had the best lap and most loving arms. She was an amazing woman and an excellent example of how to be. Memma and Papa were one of the finest examples of love to ever walk the planet - for each other and for family and for all people. She would often say - just love, love every body. She was an angel on Earth and she will be missed more than words can say.
If there's a kitchen in Heaven, surely Memma and Papa are holding hands and dancing in it

Dot was truly a precious Christian lady and a blessing to all who knew her. She will be greatly missed, but I know she is resting in the arms of her blessed Saviour.
