    Our condolences to the family of Dot Hutchins. She was a wonderful lady. Mom was happy to call her “friend” as well as co-workers at A&E for many years. From the family of Sarah Walker Jordan.

    I only knew Dot though two of her beautiful Daughters, Kathy & Lainey who I truly adore! We were high school buddies & beyond. I know you will miss this beautiful lady more than anyone can imagine! Dot can be so proud of the legacy she leaves with her lovely family! My heart goes out to you at this very difficult time.

    Please find peace in knowing she is smiling down at you standing hand in hand with the love of her life saying “we did good, Joel”

    Much love always my sweet girlfriends,

    I didn’t have the honor of knowing Mrs. Dot, but I know Kathy and Lainey. Spending time with Kathy, and knowing how she loves her family well, is a beautiful testimony of what she learned from her mother. Pray you all will sense the peace that passes all our understanding during the days and months ahead that only comes from God!
