Corinne, Bill and Lynn, I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet mother. I have many fond memories at your home and at Williams Memorial. My first birthday party (6 yrs old) was at your home. May God's blessings be on you all during this difficult time. Regards, Diane M. Keever

Mrs Dotger was a very sweet lady, learned to know her when we worked the Blood Mobile years ago for Cabarrus County. Thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. Although I didn't know her, she must have been a great lady.

I did not have the privilege of knowing Ruth Dotger. However, I know her daughter Lynn. If we can judge a person by the sort of children they raise, then Ruth must have been a top-notch person with glowing attributes. My sincerest sympathy for all family and friends. May your fond memories, and the love you had for Ruth, sustain you through this time of sorrow.
