  11. I am so sorry to hear of Dot’s passing. I have so many wonderful memories of times I spent with Dot, Hal and the family. She was an absolutely beautiful lady who always gave so much to her family and friends. It wouldn’t be unusual to stop by her house only to see a bunch of great young tennis played sleeping over as they visited EP for a junior tennis tournament. We had many wonderful moments together. I am very sad to here of her passing, but there’s no doubt that she is now an angel in Heaven. God bless Dot.
