Dot was with me on the toughest 12 days of my life while I watched my mom in a coma. She encouraged, prayed and shared wonderful stories to help pass the time. It was like God sent her to help me since I am an only child and for many hours I was alone. When my mom passed, she asked me to come back and see her because she said I always smelled good. In the beginning it was difficult but each time was easier. I will miss my visits to Room 205. Two awesome, caring, hard working and loving ladies left 205 to become angels in Heaven!
