To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that Dorothy has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God's Kingdom will do this under the rule of Jesus Christ.

Aunt Dot it still just don't seem real that you are no longer here with us all. But I know you are up there with Uncle Bill who I know you was missing dearly. I will forever hold in my heart all the wonderful memories I have of you. As my God-Mother you was a big part of my life growing up and also my son's life as well. Say hi to Uncle Bill, Mom, Dad, Benny, Dar, and Joey for me. I know you are now pain free and no longer suffering, but it still hurts. So go rest peacefully and gain your wings. Forever will be loved and missed, but will never be forgotten. Love always your God-daughter Kim.❤️❤️❤️❤️
