Dovie was a dear friend to all and always had time for anyone who needed advice or some tender loving care.
To the dear family of Dovie,
May you remember the good times and find peace in those memories.
He was like a brother and an uncle to my two sons. I shall always remember how he loved to fish and tell stories about the big one he caught and released back into the water.
I can not imagine not picking up the phone and having his voice answer and always so cheerful but those days are gone and so we shall only have "memories" but such sweet memories.
May the family remember that he is in a better place. Now he will now rest in peace.
From the Smith Family in Texas
