Mike and I had mr. Dodson for geometry and trig. He was a great teacher and his classes were tough. We always had to show all our work. Tests were difficult and required a few prayers.
Mr. And Mrs. Dodson were so dedicated to the choir and swing choir at Auburn high school. We have many happy memories of performances and get togethers. Brian and Jenn loved their high school years.
We are so sorry for your loss. You are in our prayers and thoughts. 🙏❤️

I just heard of Ronnie’s passing this morning at church. We grew up together — on Union Road and in the Church of the Brethren in Eden. Fun times I remember – riding to church in the back seat of his uncle Rufus car … Ronnie – Peggy and Me … we were in CBYF at the church and had lots of fun times. So sad to hear of his passing!!!
