i have such wonderful, fond memories of Dorothy during the years we lived near Gardner and attended First Baptist Church. She was such a joy to know. I remember one year she was teaching a Bible School class and she said she was just getting too old to do this and I couldn't understand that and now I'm there!!!! I also remember one year I was in charge of the Christmas Program and she and Russell took a part when I asked them. Dorothy and Russell were such a wonderful inspirational couple. Elaine Ledford
