  1. I knew John and Lena when they worked for my husband Roy Smith at the U Do It L’mat and car wash in the 70’s and 80’s. They both were such good people and could be trusted to always do a good job. My prayers go to the rest of the family and I would love an email from any of the kids that remember me.

  2. Extending our condolences to the family. Sorry to hear about your loss. We are no longer local and unable to attend services personally

  3. I ran across this obituary while taking my lunch break. I live in Conyers, Georgia so I never had the pleasure of meeting Brother Dix. After reading the article, I wanted to send my condolences to the family. Having lost my father recently, I understand how much you miss him. I look forward to seeing my father again in the new world (Rev 21:3,4). Hopefully we will all have a chance to meet then. Maybe Brother Dix can help me to have an appreciation for camping.
