    So many great memories of Dotty from Christmas Eve at her house to our trip to Las Vegas and the Steelers games we attended with Darlene and my brother. Dotty had a huge heart and was truly a kind soul. She will be missed..

    Our deepest heartfelt sympathy is extended to the entire Wallace family and to all of Dotty’s friends who are mourning her passing. An extra heartfelt outreach of love and support go to her sister Darlene, whose level of grief I cannot imagine during this time. Please know that I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to have met Dotty on those numerous occasions and to have witnessed firsthand her kindness and wonderful spirit towards me. Again, our deepest condolences to her wonderful family.

    I will always remember the kind heart Dottie had. Even though we were not technically family, she was always so excited to come to my birthday parties and other gatherings. She always treated my family as if they were her family. I know her family, especially the Wallaces will miss her deeply, but keep their memories of her close.
