My thoughts and prayers to Dallis, children and family. Dallis was a great prayer warrior. Friends like Dallis and Stu are rare and come along once in a lifetime if you are fortunate. What a privilege to have known them. Dallis was ready and waiting for Jesus's call. Barbara Hutchins (the late Robert Dana Hutchins)

One of the most kind and blessed women I know. Always made her home welcome to us. She liked my little grandson and laughed at his antics. Miss her.

My condolences goes out to you and your family over the loss of your love one. Times like these can bring great “anxiety”. May you receive strength from the God who promise to “fortify you...and help you” in your time of need.- Psalm 55:22; Isaiah 41:10. JW.org
