Dot Poole was a wonderful, godly woman, who with her husband, always showed me such love and support when, as a child at Alto Baptist Church, Gene was our pastor. Gene, I am forever thankful for the two of you, and my prayers are with you and all your family and friends as you mourn Dot’s homegoing. May she rest in peace and rise in glory!
