I am so sorry to learn of Dot's passing. She cared for my father during his stay at Pleasantview. She was a favorite of dad because she was so kind and pleasant and provided his care in an efficient, yet truly compassionate manner and dad noticed all of that. She always made sure he had his socks on so his feet weren't cold. That was a big deal to dad. She worked hard but still took time to smile and greet us when we visited. She truly made a difference in his life and the lives of others in the facility. I have thought of Dot often throughout the years. Please accept my condolences. The world has lost a special person.

I am so sorry to hear this. Dot cared for my mother (Doris Swartzendruber) at Pleasantview and we always enjoyed talking with her. I remember my mom was so pleased to learn that there was another "Doris" living so close to her before she moved to the Pleasantview Community. May you experience God's love and care during this difficult time.
