This is my wonderful Mother-in-law:
Dottie is the daughter of William Henry Todd and Irene Ross Todd.
She is the wife of Forrest Ivan Edwards "Frosty"
She is the Mother of two girls and one boy.
Dottie was a wonderful Christian lady who truly knew the Lord and all His promises. She kept a close relationship with Him since a child.
Her Father was a Methodist preacher and when Dottie was about Twelve years of age she lost both of her parents who were killed in a Train accident.
Dottie and all her siblings were split apart and later in life they were all very blessed to find each other again.
When Dottie was in her sixties she got Lymphoma and battled that for many years, but she claimed God's promises for her healing, read her Bible and prayed several times each day without fail as she had always done.
I remember one time I had invited her to a church that I was attending to have the Pastor pray with her for healing.
She had a prior commitment, but she did have a window of time where she could be there.
I'll not ever forget as she walked in and sat down beside me the presence of God was so strong that I began to cry.
Once we prayed and the time came for her to go, that presence went right out the door with her.
I know that God truly had His hand on her and I believe it was because she was so faithful to Him.
I also remember when she passed away thinking to myself, "Who will pray for us now?"
There is such a strong sense of security when you leave for the day to know that prayers are going straight to the ear of God on your behalf and that they come from a heart that truly loves and cares very much for your well being.
I am blessed to have had such a wonderful Mother-in-law who was a great teacher and prayer warrior.
She definitely changed the direction of my life and I'll always be thankful to her for that.
You set a great example for us Dottie and you are loved and missed so much by all who ever had the priveledge of knowing you.
Rest eternally in peace now, and one day we will meet each other again.
