  • I had the absolute honor of meeting Dottie as her caretaker. I understand that I didn’t meet the Dottie everyone else knew but I had a tremendous bond with her quickly. She would smile no matter what. She loved music and we listened to it everyday as I called her Dottie Jean my dancing queen. Forever in my heart.
