I would like to express my condolences to the family of Delores "Dodie" Day. I am one of the Eucharistic Ministers from St. Joseph Catholic Church who brought Communion to the Catholic community of Cedar Court. Dodie had a beautiful and lively spirit! I always appreciated her comments and kind "take" on things. May she rest in peace with God and all the saints.
