What a beautiful lady. The lights in heaven are brighter from her smile. She was such an influence on me growing up at St John's. May God bless her family.

We never had enough time to spend together, but GMA Dot was always a role model for my desire to volunteer and give to others and my community.
Thank you Uncle Bill for your hospitality and kindness keeping us all in touch.

So sorry for your loss. I'll always cherish the memories of Mrs. Creel at St. John's. She had a servant's heart and loved people and showed us Jesus. God bless you and comfort you.
