This is a tremendous loss, not only to our Chapter, but to Linkdom, and to our communities. Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in her memory help comfort you -- Please feel free to click here to remember all our sister contributed. We would not have a Chapter without her and our beloved Sister, Organizer, Charter Member, Former Chapter President DyAnne Horner Little. They shared a special relationship and standing in Linkdom.

There are three needs of the griever:
-- to find the words for the loss
-- to say the words aloud and
-- to know that the words have been

Our Chapter Chaplain, Ingrid Parris-Hicklin has offered:
Father, we pray for Willa Rawls Dumas and the circle of family and friends who are grieving. We are hurting, and we ask You to help us through this season of loss. We reach out to You, the Father of compassion and the Source of every comfort, asking You to touch us with Your unfailing love and kindness. Jesus, You said, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted" (Matthew 5:4, NIV) . We are mourning; send us Your comfort. Wrap around Your arms around us and hold us tight.
