" I love you grandma I miss you so much. I used to call you every Thursday night. And I would talk about my day and week with you. It was fun to talk to you. I always thought it was cool that you and me had a phone. I always wanted you to get a modern phone and get rid of your flip phone. You were throwing pillows at me when we went skiing at loon mountain. Then when mom came you would blame it on me. That was funny :). I miss you grandma. I love you."

You will be missed by so many. Pat & I shared many laughs, and good times as we worshiped with you for many years, but most importantly the impact you had in the mission plant, which as a result of your hard work & dedication became a chartered Congregation. Our prayers are with your family, and we look forward to our reunion with you when we meet in that glorious place Christ has reserved for all of us.

Praying for Family and Friends of Dorothy who will miss her mightily. Privileged and thankful for the time that she shared to help build the mission plant and the steps we took along the path to establish the church and water and encourage seed of Faith in others. " Well done, Good and Faithful Servant." we will see you again when Christ comes again and we all go to be with the Saints who have gone before us.
