"I'm sure you and the families heart is aching." Here's something to help with the pain. God is there for you and the family as comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. God will also help mankind by the Kingdom in the Lord's Prayer. Matthew 6:9,10. God Will solve All mankinds problems here's some of them peace between man and animals, the dead coming back to life here on earth to live forever, the blind will see again, the deaf will hear again, the mute will talk again, the desert plains will burst with water, the lame will run again, people will build houses and live in them forever and child birth will be easy. Isaiah 11:6-9: Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:11,29; Isaiah 35:5,6; 65:21-24. For more comfort you and the family here's my email

I am so sorry to her about Dorothy’s illness and of her passing away. I worked with Dorothy for many years in the Special Education program at Cherokee. She brought me home the day my son had died, wouldn’t let me drive myself. She went back to the school to pick up my daughter, Erin. We were good friends. She has told me about her grief when her siblings had died. She still missed them. I am sure they were happy to meet each other again in Heaven. She talked so fondly of Bob, Travis and Bobby Lynn, and all her family. I am unable to attend services, I have a prior commitment. I love all of you and you all are 69in my prayers.

Dear Family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dear loved one. Our loving Creator never planned for death to be part of his original plan. There is such a loving scripture found at Revelation 21: 3 & 4 which reads: " Look! The tent of God is with mankind and he will reside with them and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. Andhe will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more. The Former things have passed away " I hope these words help you find comfort and also give you hope for our near future.
