Not sure what to say?

Miss Dottie was absolutely wonderful to my Mom and Dad when they'd retired from the mission field and Dad broke a hip and was air-lifted to Tampa. They lived with her for a number of months for rehab. Some years later, they took me to visit - and I too was blessed by her generous heart, dedication to missions and to the absolute truth of God's word. Having grown up in Africa as a missionary kid, I had a natural love for missionary aviation. So I never tired of hearing Miss Dottie tell her...

I forgot to my name on the previous entry.
