What a beautiful obituary. We're so sorry for your loss Uncle John but at the same time so happy. Dixie that she's finally with our Lord. We know the hole in your heart is huge but hopefully your faith in the Love of All of Us will see you through healing that hole. We all love you...

We love Dixie and we're so blessed to have known her. She opened her home to us for a weekly Bible study. I always looked for her on Sunday because her smile would make me feel so good! Can't to see her again someday in Heaven.
