~*~ Easter Blessings are upon you Dear Aunt Opal ~*~
Your's and your tiny angel babie's memorials have been sponsored by a precious lady - all of our friend Purple-Lady. This is a wonderful start to Easter week - and you know He is Risen.
Thank you Dear Friend for sponsoring my Aintie who left us too soon.
April 22, 2013 -- Joined in Heaven by her little sister Montez Vasek .. my Daddy's last living sibling.. All of the Dodd's are almost gone.

It has been many years since the passing of my Aintie Opal - and last night, My Aintie Montez went through the Gates of Heaven to join her Mother, Daddy, Sister and Grandson...

I received an email from a relative to update her bio. So thankful after all of these years someone finally visited her Memorial -- No flowers were left - do pray that they will come back and leave a token...

" I just wanted to correct some mistakes made on my Grandmother's page from facts and misspellings.
Denise had 2 children from marriage #1 to Joe Sharp, and none from #2 David Cates. Danielle and Robin Sharp. My daddy's name is Kenneth and my mother's Sharla Forrester not Charla. Also Alicia and Ashley Welch graduated HS in 2002. Thank You."
In response -- to keep it simple, I have corrected to just list my three cousins, my Aintie's children. After her passing, I have no further detail.

Please visit Dear Mother Gott - our Friend Purple Ladie's sweet Mother.
