Mrs Landry was the sweetest woman and every day when my kids were little if Mrs Landry was walking by our house she would make it a point to stop and chat with my oldest daughter Rebekah, they would exchange a hug and Mrs Landry would listen to my daughters stories who at that time was 5yrs old. As the years went by and the kids got older Mrs Landry would still take her walks through the neighborhood. I can still hear the “ hello Mrs Landry” from all the children who were so happy to see her. When her walks became less frequent I remember my kids would ride their bikes to her house just so they could see Mrs Landry. Mrs Landry will always be a wonderful memory for my family and especia...lly My oldest Daughter Rebekah.Read more

The times we went swimming at the lake in Lincoln when we were kids. Will never get those times back.

She always made sure we had something to eat every time we visited.

Many fond memories of Aunt Dot from growing up. She was always very kind to me, likely because I would admire her knick-knacks but never touch them! Through the years, she always mentioned that! When she worked at Osgoods, every year she would help me select something special as a Christmas gift for my mother. Aunt Dot had style and an engaging personality. God Bless You, Auntie!
