I just noticed Miss Dollie's obituary. I am so sorry for your loss. Dollie was such a sweet, sweet lady. I was Dr. Robert Coles nurse and had her for a patient for a number of years. It was an honor to have known her. My prayers are with your family. Roni Lockhart, RN

Dolly I am so sorry to lose you. Because of you I have my little Sadie. She is the best thing anybone has given me. I know Trixie is still missing you. I am sure she has good people taking taking care of her. Like I have always said I will be happy to give Trixie a home with her sister if she ever needs a place. Dolly taught me so much about the Lord. I started church and started reading my Bible again. I can feel the love of the Lord again. Dolly did that for me. So I thank Dolly for helping me see the light again. She could always brighten my day. I know she has a lot of family and they love her also.

I am so sad to lose Dolly. I met her through a Maltese group on Facebook. I was trying to get help to get a Maltese. She messaged me right away and told me where she got Trixie. I called the number and they had my little dog. I was so happy. I had to fly My little Sadie flown to me in Texas. Dolly and I talked on the phone often. It has been almost 7 years since she helped me get Sadie. I am positive Dolly is in heaven now. She has no more pain. Dolly and I could talk about religion together. She was the sweetest person.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
