Dot and i because friends when I started working at Simply Elegant, now Cotton + Pine. She and I became very close and I always had to wait on her when she was in the store. Dot was an interesting lady with quite the background. She loved clothes and never did I see her when she was not immaculate. I loved Dot, and I’m so glad I always told her that! I will miss my sweet friend. May you rest in Pearce, Dot. I will always remember you and our friendship.

I remember Ms Dot from my early years of being friends with Dwayla, our time together working at the hospital, and finally just enjoying the times we would see each other in local stores and chat for a while. I will miss you sweet Dot♥️

Dot and I have been friends for many years. She was a beautiful person inside and out. I always just enjoyed seeing what she wore and it was always perfect. Will miss seeing her and our friendship.
