We have so many special memories of our beloved "Ms. Dorothy". She had our kids in class as so many others in her legacy of love and faithful service to the Lord, children and her church. She was a blessing to us and an amazing servant of her Lord. We are grateful to have known her. I enjoyed being her pastor was always thankful for her support. Prayers for her family.
