    Dallas loved Friendship and Friendship loves Dallas. Please know how much we appreciate all you and Dallas have done for Friendship Methodist Church. You are both sorely missed. I never see a gingerbread house that I don’t think of the lovely one Dallas made and I won at the raffle. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
