I have always been blessed by being a part of the Dodson Family. I loved Mary and the family since I met her all those years ago. She will be greatly missed. Love, Vicki

"Ma" has been my second mother for more than 40 years and the Dodsons my second family. We have been through a lot together and Ma was always there. I will miss her but know that she and LInda are watching over all of us. Love to all of you, Kris

Ma was the foundation of the family and will be greatly missed by her family and everyone who knew her. Her passing has left a large void in Jean and my lives as well as that of her grandson, Nathan, and his wife, Sarah.
