On behalf of Mary, the family would like to express particular appreciation to nieces Norine Boswell and Jean Fling for their many years of kindness and friendship.

We are never ready to part company, but we can remember how much Dot loved us. She gave the best hugs and was always ready to listen to our stories of good times and bad times. She gave her heart in her advice and it was the best of her. There was no better life teacher or friend. We loved her for being herself, we loved her laugh, we loved her "toys", we loved her shoes with the toe cut out, we just loved all of her and knew she loved us. She will be sorely missed here on earth, but we have gained an angel to love. Thanks to the entire Frye family for sharing Dot with us. Love always and forever, Kathy and Larry

You will forever be in my heart Aunt Dot. You showed so much love and had the warmest smile. I'll always remember the trips I made out to Boswell Lane to visit and chat with you. Say hello to my Pop-pop and Uncle Jimmy for me. I love you so much and I'll be seeing you.

Love Always,

I will never forget her laugh and ability to bring that joy to everyone around her. She was very special to my Father and his eyes always lit up when he spoke of her.
