Eld. W. S. Dozier

Death has claimed this brother after almost six months of failing health. He was strong in the faith, and made many sacrifices for the cause. His last service was at Piney Grove and Blackaby Springs where he filled Pastor Hubbard's appointments about six weeks before his death. He had calls from two churches, but had not accepted. I have lost a loving husband, The Baptist has lost an earnest advocate and the denomination one who was devoted to its principals. But he is "resting, sweetly resting." Eld.T.C. Swofford conducted the burial sevice. The last text used by my husband was John 14:2. Pray for me in my grief. Callie E. Dozier
Hope, Ark.
