Dot was a godly role model for many of us at Release time, One of my last memories of her was requesting prayer before teaching, she said it was a hard lesson & she knew she could only teach with God's help. May we all live like Dot, fully relying on God each day!
May her joy continue to be contagious in the lives she touched! Praying for her family, & looking forward to meeting you at her "graduation celebration"!

I truly loved your mother. She was such an encouragement to me and my ministry, especially during the decade plus we served together at Blue Ball Released Time. I was figuring the other day that she likely taught over 400 children that God Loves Them in the course of her time at Blue Ball R/T. Our prayers go out to you and your family at this time.
