I am so sorry to hear this. Heaven has gained a fine lady. I never once saw Dinkie that she was not smiling from ear to ear. She always encouraged me. I loved her dearly. Prayers for her family as they walk this journey of grief.

Dinky is my sister in Jesus Christ and she is the epitome of what it means to be “born again”, When Jesus touch her heart, her life changed completely, the old self Dinky died and the new born again Dinky was alive to spend eternity with her Savior,Jesus Christ. What a witness she was for Jesus, she wanted everyone to know what Jesus had done for her and he would do the same for them, if they would only believe. Rest In peace, Dinky your final war with pain is over. Love, Jimmy Morris.
