A post on the 757 Real Estate Facebook page said “thoughts and prayers go out to the Deep Creek community, high school, cheer family and everyone that knew the Dooley family”. It notes what so many of you know that deep creek is a small but tight knit community that the Dooley family was an active part of.
On a post on the Western Branch Growing Forward Facebook page has a simple blue candle saying that a community is mourning.
A missionary in Illinois also talked on his Facebook page about the Dooley’s support of his work in third world hospitals, and a Pastor in Florida posted about the Dooley’s supporting his efforts for close to 40 years.
