  1. My heart is heavy with the passing of a wonderful friend. Though it has been several years since we were in touch, Dorothy has always been close in my thoughts for the gift of her friendship. My loving thoughts to you Bruce and all the family.

  2. I have great memories of Dorothy in our Covenant Women and DVBS in Springfield, Va.
    Arnold and I were charter members and appreciated both Dorothy and Bruce Lake’s
    work and friendship.

  3. Dorothy’s gift of hospitality will always be remembered from a young Army guy who soaked up the love and attention in Springfield, VA and who later became a Covenant Pastor in large part due to the encouragement of Bruce and Dorothy. God bless you Bruce and girls and your families.

  4. Just an addition to the news item about the Memorial service for Dorothy Lake: Bruce Lake also served as pastor of the Covenant church in Joliet, IL..
