On behalf of TOLEDO Turners we would like to send our thoughts and prayers to Dot’s family and to her River City Turner family. So many fond and fun memories of KIO meets and conventions with Dot. She truly loved the Turners. Always that smile when she watch the gymnasts. And the huge hug every time she seen you. Thanks for the memories Dot. You will be missed!
