Ms.Dottie, was the first to great me and I guess just about anybody coming into church! We would talk about Our children and pray quickly for different people ect. The last I talked with her, she told me talk to God, He is a great listener ! I hugged her and told her see you next time ... . Her funeral today was very meaningful and I will miss the Light House Lady!
