Jan, Robert and family,
I have many wonderful memories of your dad and mom and will remember all of you in my prayers as you grieve your mom's loss.
When we went to Mabel White in 1959, my parents (Jim and Ruth Russell) loved the Faith Bible Class taught by your dad, and your mother's smile made an impression on me even as a girl. She was such a good example of a Christian woman and her influence will continue through the years. May God comfort you all in the days ahead.

Sending love and prayers to all of you and praying for your peace and comfort. Saying goodbye is never easy, but one day we will all be celebrating together again. It has been several years since I have seen Aunt Dorothy, but have fond memories of when your family would visit Evansville. She was such a fun and loving person. She was a great cook just like all of her sisters. I absolutely love her recipe for sweet potato casserole and make it often. May God bless all of you.

Robert, Jan and families,

Our heartfelt condolences to you and yours. To me, Aunt Dot was the southern lady of hospitality and graciousness. She always welcomed us with open arms and open house, even to a nosy nephew. I know her legacy lives on in her Christian faith and charity passed on to her family and closest friends.

Our love to all of you,
Kenny David and Claudia Schneider

Robert, (Lynda), Laura and Jan,

Please accept our sincerest condolences in your mother/grandmother's passing this week. I met Mrs. Towe a few times at Smoke Rise Church and at Mr. Towe's funeral. She was truly a wonderful and gracious Christian lady. I always got a report on how she was doing after one of Robert's visits in Macon with her.

May God comfort all of you in the loss and yet may you rejoice that one of His tenured loved ones has now come home.

Russ and Brenda Dugger,
Smoke Rise Baptist Church, Stone Mountain, Ga.
