    We remember ‘Mamma Dot’ with gratitude and respect. A lady who loved books and adored her family, she reserved her counsel and spoke only when she had wisdom and insight to share. We enjoyed her quiet, sensitive company and kind spirit. We thank our God for her life and influence.We shall miss her. Phil and Keitha Needham

    Dear Garrett Family: My deepest sympathy for the family and friends of Dorothy. We will never get used to losing our loved ones in death because as Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “We were created with everlasting life in view.” But may you find comfort in knowing that Almighty God has promised that soon he will swallow up death forever along with the pain that it brings. (Isaiah 25:8) God has also promised that he will return Dorothy to you as it says at John 5:28,29. You can also learn more about what happens when a loved one dies at
