Messages & Condolences
Brother Dodd was a very upbeat man. No matter what his condition, when you asked how he was, he would always answer with “Fantastic!” That was his attitude toward life. He told me once, “You can be fantastic if you want to. You have to decide to be fantastic.” I was priviledged to have visited him in his home a few times recently. He always welcomed us from Heritage Baptist Church with a smile on his face. He was a genuine pleasure to talk with and spend time with. He was very well loved by everyone at church, and he will be sorely missed. May God bless his family with the comfort of knowing that Brother Dodd is with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He really is fantastic now!
