    Your Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother and Great-Great Grandmother was my kindergarten teacher at Boyd Buchanan School in 1961. She was a wonderful first teacher for me and so many other children. I was in the class that suffered the loss of a class mate due to a train accident. I remember her telling us with much love and heartache that our classmate was with Jesus. She had a wonderful laugh and I’m sure as children, we gave her much opportunity to do so! I remember she would tell me she had a daughter named Jennifer. That always made me feel special. I will pray that all the wonderful and loving memories of your dear Mother will soon displace the grief you feel in your heart. She is certainly resting in the Lord and what better place to be than there! Much love to you all

    Dora is walking streets of gold in Heaven! God was so pleased with her life, He gifted her with many years of life. Proverbs 3:2 states with long life I will satisfy her and show her My salvation. For length of days , and long life, and peace shall they add to you. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the.death of His faithful servants. ” Psalm 116:15.
