Dorothy was a special lady and treated me almost as one of her own. I very much appreciated her wisdom and support during my growing years. She will be missed, and my prayers are with her family.

Just affirming how much your mom met to all of us at Haven Baptist and also, personally. She greeted all with one of her special smiles. We are thankful to our Father in Heaven for sharing her with us, and, of course, heaven is now enjoying her where someday: we will be greeted by her hugs and smiles.
