Aunt Dot always had a smiling face when we went to visit her as little kids. She had a mostwonderful kitchen filled with lemon meringue, banana cream pies and banana oatmeal cookies and always topped with hugs! Her sweet mango peppers were the best in the world. I really love her and am going to miss her.She never had a hateful bone in her body and was so special. Wish I could be there Butchie, but I just found out late last night.
