My Memory of Your Mom goes way back.. It was your parents Dot and Carl that first studied the Bible with my parents and helped them to know Jehovah God and his promises for those who age, get sick, or die. What a wonderful thing to know we will see them again when Jesus calls forth our loved ones from the memorial tombs. John 5:28-29. In the meantime, we will miss her sweet smile. Dot was such a lovely person inside and out. Our hearts are with you all. Much Love ,Tammy and John Finley

Wayne and Colleen, So saddened to hear of your Mother's passing. She knew the Lord and has definitely earned a place in our Heavenly Father's Kingdom. Both your parents were such an inspiration to me in my early youth. They taught me right and wrong, acceptance of my Fellow Man, and Love Of God. Take comfort in knowing you will meet again. Lord I pray you hold this family in your loving embrace and grant them comfort and healing in their time of sorrow and always . I pray this in Jesus's name, your only son our Lord forever and ever AMEN & AMEN

Brenda Peavy

I remember her from the picture with the dark hair and being called Dot. One day soon we will see all friends at their best..

Kevin Moore

After Wayne found my Mom, Royetta Moore, out in service, Dot reactivated Mom, conducting studies with her over a period of time. It was enough to help Mom survive in this old world, long enough to where she was able to teach her kids about Jehovah God and His Kingdom hope. For that I'm so very thankful. I continue today due to much of Dorothy Peyton and Wayne Peyton's efforts. I know she is most certainly missed by family and friends, yet in just a little while we can see her and enjoy her and Carl's stories again. What a wonderful hope Jehovah God holds out to us. Love y'all and so sorry for the tremendous loss.

Tim Sweat
