  4. We feel a deep loss of a friendship that has endured for many many years.
    Dorothy was a loving, caring, full of wisdom lady that is leaving an empty
    spot in our community. Dorothy was admired and trusted through the many
    years she served as City Secretary for Bryan. She performed her position with honor and dignity. Her loving nature surely did fit right into the spirit of those
    of us who have had the honor of being in the Extension Service Club all these
    years. She has blessed our lives – Rest in Peace dear friend.
    With Much Love, Bea

  5. Mrs. Mallett – what a privilege and honor to be part of your life. Now you are in the hands of Jesus – how wonderful is that! Even though I am not “officially” family, I am so blessed to have been accepted as a part of your family for over twelve years. You were such a lady of integrity. I enjoyed so much our visits and talks. Thank you and Mr. Mallett for allowing me to share in the family and learn wisdom and guidance from you both.
    Your service was amazing. I know you were smiling on everyone and blessed by the touch of God during this time. Pastor Bill shared amazing truths about you and blessed all there with a beautiful message, reaching out to all sharing the love of Christ and pathway to salvation. Ricky and the entire staff at Callaway-Jones did an amazing job. We felt the love and care with all the visits and long hours they endured.
    So blessed to see the many friends who came to love the family through this walk. Time after time nothing but honor and respect spoken. Though it’s hard for those left behind, I’m thrilled to know you are healthy, strong and happy. You deserve the joy that you are now embracing. I’m so honored to have a small part of your life. Thank you for the wonderful witness you have been to me.
    Be assured that Mr. Mallett, Karen, Jay, Keith and I are a bond. We will walk together and take care of each other until it’s each of our time to “come home”.
    None of us know how heaven really is but my hope is you meet my son and family. I know they would smile and say they are blessed that I have been blessed by you and your family. They would know you were the perfect example of who was supposed to be in my life. They would love Keith. I promise you I will take care of him. He has your compassion and love for people.
    You will be missed here on earth but we all look forward to the day when we gather in each other’s arms again. Your legacy lives on. With honor I call you friend.
    Love and miss you – Patricia
