                        Friday, October 8, 2004

  Mr. ROGERS of Alabama. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Dora 
Belle Thomas Stone of Lee County, Alabama, in anticipation of her 100th 
birthday on November 8, 2004.
  Born in Chilton County, Alabama, on November 8, 1904, Mrs. Stone is 
the daughter of the late George W. and Phairby Adeline Headly Thomas. 
In 1918, Mrs. Stone moved to Phenix City, Alabama, where she married 
William Henry Stone on October 21, 1921. She is the mother of four 
children: William Earl Stone, Thomas Milton Stone, George Lamar Stone, 
and Barbara Anne Stone Ennis. She has eight grandchildren and ten great 
grandchildren.
  Mrs. Stone is a retired music teacher who taught Sunday school for 
more than 60 years, and is a member of Smiths Station Baptist Church. 
She says she cherishes most her family, her church, and God's Word, and 
studies her Bible every day.
  It's not often we have the opportunity to recognize the life and 
accomplishments of a citizen like Mrs. Stone, and I appreciate the 
House's attention on this important occasion.
