  1. My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Dorothy. Although we never had the opportunity to meet Dorothy, personally we wanted to share with you comfort from Gods word found in John 5:28,29. There Jesus showed us a wonderful example of the resurrection when he resurrected Lazarus, here on earth, to the arms of those he loved. (John 11). Remember also that our Heavenly Father expresses his loving compassion for all of us when someone we love dies. (Psalm 34:18) Besure and share your memories with those who surround you at this very difficult time, for the memories shared are the ones most truly cherished, may they bring you a sense of peace and joy in your hearts as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.

    Hello Family or Ga/Day
    We want to express our sympathies to you. Dorthy was well known in our community and we knew her and enjoyed her company. We are members of Bethel Reformed Church where she came to our Senior Bible Study along with other members of or Village as well as church folks. We always stopped to chat with her when we made visits at Marvins Manor. She will be missed.
