I was saddened to hear of the loss of Dorcas. She was a beautiful spirit and I will miss her, she was always so playful and sweet. I know she is home now with her Father and Siblings rejoicing in the glory of her Father in Heaven. I felt blessed to know her.

I was so saddened to hear that Dottie had passed away. My condolences go out to all of her family and friends. I meant Dottie through my daughter-in-law Patricia, and I enjoyed seeing her whenever she came to Baltimore to visit Patricia and my granddaughter Gabrielle (Dottie's goddaughter). She will be missed. Rest in eternal peace Dottie.

Carr Family,

Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of Dottie. We had wonderful times at Power House of Deliverance #5. When I think of Dottie, I think about how she was a gift from God. She would help anyone if she could. She was a praiser, worshiper and loved to dance and mime. She had a heart of gold.

We know that she is in the presence of Almighty God and what a safe place to be. I will certainly miss her.

May the Peace of God which passes all understanding, keep your hearts and mind.

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers,

Pastor Shirley Robinson, Destiny Deliverance Ministries, Westover, WV
