  5. CandleImageWe are so sorry for your loss. Dot was special to our family. I remember her famous coconut cake with mandarin oranges. Bud and Dot took many trips together with my parents.

  7. Thankful to God that we were able to learn from & work with Dot in Front Line door-to-door evangelistic outreach. We emphatically caught a vision of the urgency to share the Good News of Salvation with as many folks as possible in this twisted world we’re presently stationed in.
    Been missing her these years since she had to give up the door-to-door approach.
    This is one lady that we confidently look forward to seeing at the Marriage Feast of the Lamb!
    Bob & Susan
