Service Location: 


As the current pastor of Parkesburg Baptist Church, I visited with Dorothy a few times, most recently just a few weeks ago. Although her memory was failing, she was a delight to spend time with, and her smile never left her face as we talked. She said how fortunate she was, how nice everyone at the facility was to her, how she enjoyed the food and, especially, how fortunate and how grateful she was to have her daughter as a frequent visitor. My condolences to her family. If there is any way I can be of help with respect to service, please feel free to contact me.
