    I loved Dotty! We had such good times when we were Vogel PTA together when Stephen and my Lauren were there. God has a beautiful, funny, loving Angel to light the skies!! I guess he wanted to share her with the world by looking over more of us. Love to the entire family. Definitely left this world too soon.

    Aunt Dotty was selected to be my God Mother when I was an infant. Through my childhood, teenage years, and into my twenties we had many touching base moments that I hold dear to my heart. She had the ability to meet me on my level, whatever that may have been at the time. Whether it was hosting family fun at her house, watching scary movies during a sleepover, or having a couple of margaritas at a restaurant she was there for me fully in those memories. This is a tough loss for her siblings, and my heart is with all of you right now.
