Dot was such a pleasure to be around at St. Andrews. Every time I visited my mom (who was in the room right beside of Dot) I would try to see Dot just to say hello and get a smile. She will be missed "zooming" around the halls there. My mom will miss her daily visits as well. Sincere sympathy. Donna Harkey

Dot Cayado is why my son is the sweet boy that he is. She treated my son like he was her own. I will love her forever and am grateful for all she did for me and my family.

With love, Lee and Bea Fenstermaker

I am grateful for the many conversations Dot and I have had at St Andrews. She was a true delight and so engaging. I am grateful for my memories of Dot watching her tomatoes ripen-appreciating the warmth of the noonday sunlight- and hearing weekly reports of how well Pete was doing in answering the trivia questions in "Coffee News". Her zeal for life was wonderful to see. My thought and prayers are with your family at this time. Donna Beaver Smith
