I am going to miss Dottie's anointing, her
wonderful gift of making people feel at ease,
foremost her love of the Lord and the Gospel Mesage, her singing while playing the guitar
and taking her shoes off (I liked that, I do not like the wearing of shoes either). She was the real deal. I think she loved everyone; and surely everyone loved Dottie. Her songs that the Lord
gave her will live on; and Dottie lives on in Heaven, where we will all get to see her again.
My prayers go to Reba, Dony, Destiny, Israel,
and Dionne and all of the family and extended family and close friends. I viewed a video
with Dottie singing, "We Shall Behold Him" and she was doing the signing for it as well; I sat there and cried and cried, not for her, she is with the Lord; but for us. We will greatly miss her.
Never expected to lose you this soon, Dottie.
Even though I had not met you, you were family,
yes, a sister in the Lord. You will have no more pain now, it is gone; and no tears....
Love and prayers

I had the great honor and priveledge to meet and love My Precoius Friend, Dottie Rambo. She told me many secrets about her life, and it was just a wonderful blessing to sit and talk to such a down to earth, yet a Holy vessel of King Jesus. She most surely with her Father in Heaven now and Thank God NO MORE PAIN for this precious child of the King. Please, everyone continue to pray intensively for Larry,Judy, and the boys. And please don't forget Chris and Ronnie and all their famalies. If you can imagine how much they loved her and took care of her, can you imagine what it must be like for them to be so far away and can't be there for the Home-Going Celebration. She loves those kids with all her heart and has for a long time....please keep that in mind as you pray!!!

"He Looked Beyond My Fault and Saw My Need" and "We Shall Behold Him" are two of the most beautiful hymns ever written! Although Joyce Rambo has gone from our presence in a most tragic way, she leaves music that has brought me joy and will forever touch the hearts and souls of those who hear it! Our loss is heaven's gain! I pray that her family and friends will be comforted by loving and fond memories of her!

I feel such a close bond with ms. Rambo, yet I never knew her. When I try to learn a song she wrote, if I have difficulty I pray Lord please Let Dottie teach me. Some how the next day I fid that He has taught me the song.I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, That Ms. Rambo was very special to God. She is still planting seeds of hope in people after leaving this earth. I think another person who God is using in a mighty way is LuLu Roman. I feel the need to keep her lifted in prayer all the tme. Thank you Jesus for these two special people of your family. Dottie, Thank you for the positive things I have learned of God through your music.
