Condolence & Memory Journal

Dot was more than a secretary at YCR. For years she was the heart and soul of the real estate group who made it function. When I was unexpectedly required to be the responsible attorney for that group, I turned to Dot for advice on everythingwhat to do, how to do it, who to call, whether we could pull all the work together in order to close on the requested date and more. She never failed to pull off miracles so we could close. My bride and I were so pleased when she attended our wedding on one of the hottest June lowcountry days ever. Thank you, Dot, for your calm in the storm and for always being there. Please accept our sympathies to the family for your loss. Bill Bates

Ray, Lynn & family, so very sorry to hear of your loss. The thing I will always remember the most about her in our days at Portside was how striking she always looked in her suits and jewelry, even at her age she always proved a "lady" could still look the part.

We love and miss you and wish we could see and give you all great big hugs.

Please know that our hearts and prayers are with you not only now but in the days ahead and particularly during those times of special celebrations when her presence will be dearly missed.

Love, Nancy, Jody, Colt & Jesse Huggins
