Will miss your laughter and stories of you and my mom tormenting my uncles. You had such a zest for life, loved being with people and fishing with Toots and granny. I'm sure you'll all be around a pond in heaven! Love you and will miss you!

So sorry for your loss! I knew Dot years ago when I was a teenager and we would go to Floyd and Opal’s on a Sunday afternoon. She was such a sweet lady. I’m a daughter of Roy and Wilma Sharp of Clay City.
