Mrs. Dobson was one of my most favorite patients at our office. She always brightened my day when she came in and made me feel so incredibly loved. Both her and Mr. Dobson had the sweetest souls. I will miss her as I have missed him. It was a true blessing being able to know her over the years. She will never be forgotten and will always be missed. Malcom and Vicki, please let me know if you need anything. You and your family will remain in my thoughts and prayers. I love you all.

I remember going with my friend, Mary, to sit with Marvin and Ms. Margaret for hours talking about subjects from one spectrum to another. Spending time with her ordering and talking about Avon news weather and sport and let's not forget politics. Will miss our times together.
Praying that God Blesses the family and friends with strength and healing knowing It Is Well With Her Soul!!!
