    Neil, Tom, Steeve, Leana and each of the family.
    Dolly has been to me a good friend for many years.
    We shared many things together.
    Dolly continued to up date me with the things happening in my favorite church at First Christian in Ocala once we moved to Georgia.
    I will always remember and cherish the happy times we had together.
    We will miss Dolly however we know that she is now with our Lord in Heaven.
