Aunt Dova Ree will be missed by all who love her so much! I remember her when I was a young child in her Crossing Guard outfit smiling! Then she watched me grow! She loved family. In her later years, Always enjoyed her visits when Roy would bring her to visit us! Every little thing you do for her she'd say "Thank you babe" with a smile!! She has the hope of a resurrection that God promised. Acts 24:15. She will be a subject of God's Goverment where she will then live forever on the earth. Psalms 37:29. With Love!!

Whenever I came to see Roy I had the bonus of seeing Ms. Lacy who with that beautiful smile and loving voice always made me feel like family! Yes part of it was that Texas upbringing of southern hospitality but it was primarily her Christian Spirit that was so clearly present in her being. It has been such a blessing to know her and that gift remains though she has gone to be with the Lord. Thus I pray for the family to be comforted by that gift of memories and lessons she has taught us while here.
