  1. We remember your mother fondly at West University Baptist Church. I know she will be missed so much – but I am so thankful to know she is with Jesus now – whole and strong again!

  2. Dorothy was such a sweet person. She had such a lovely laugh and smile. She was so proud of her family. She was missed at WUBC after her move. We will remember her fondly. So sorry for your loss.

  3. Mrs. Stewart was my 4th grade teacher back at Walnut Bend Elementary. I have nothing but fond, sweet memories of my time in her class. She was kind, gentle, caring, and such a great teacher. Thankful to God for her life well lived.
