Praying comfort and strength for the Davis family on the passing of "Dottie," a mother, a grandmother, a great grandmother who was soft-spoken and exemplified kindness and humility in myriad caregiver support roles she provided others. I image an angel waiting and smiling in great anticipation as God proclaims, "Well done, my good and faithful servant. Enter ye into the joy of the Lord. " Eternal peace, Dootie. . . .

Sending my condolences and prayers to my her children. Your mom accepted me and treated me like family She was a kind soul and I enjoyed each time we sat down and laughed and talked. Whenever I seen her in the stores it was the same way. She always had kind words to say. Praying that God sends his angels to watch over you cause she will always be with you. Rest assured that she is in her heavenly home smiling cause she made it
