I remember Bro. Wayne and Sister Roma Lee from the Dumas Church of the Nazarene. They were pillars in the church and such joys to have there. I moved from Dumas in 2003 and lost touch with them, didn't know of his death until this even though I visited the church when in Dumas until moving further away in 2017. I hear of Gotebo on our weather here often and have a cousin buried there so was around there for her daughter's funeral in Marlow a few years ago as she was also buried in that cemetery. May God bless your memories and each of you.
