Marie, so sorry for such a loss. Dollie was one of my favorite people from Stinnett. She was a sweet lady and I always enjoyed being around her. I remember the jokes she and Granddad (Buck Christian) would pull on each other. She certainly had a wonderful sense of humor, too. I know that you and Dana were the sunshine in her life and I was always impressed with how in love she was with Bruce. Heaven gained another angel.
