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 services were at Piney Grove and Blackley Springs, where he filled Pastor Hubbard's appointments about six weeks before his death. He had calls from two churches, but had not yet accepted. I have lost a loving husband, The Baptist has lost an earnest advocate and the denomination one who was devoted to its principles. But he is "resting, sweetly resting". Eld T. C. Swofford conducted the burial service. The last text used by my husband was John 14:2. Pray for me in my grief.
