  1. EB condolence:

    I’m sorry for the loss of your loved one. The Bible admonishes us to “Throw your burden upon Jehovah himself, and he himself will sustain you.” (Psalm 55:22) May you find comfort, peace and hope in God’s word during this time of sorrow.

  2. Rosa G condolence:

    May the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort bring peace to your family at this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3. My sincerest sympathy to the family of Ms. Dorothy.

  3. BJH condolence:

    Barb and Dave: So sorry this has happened especially now, at Christmas. I know she had a long, good life, just like my Mom did. Maybe they are meeting together “up there.” Barb

  4. Barbara Kozi condolence:

    I’m so sorry to learn of your Mom’s passing. Not the way you would choose to spend the holidays, I know. I will try to see you at the visitation. My thoughts and blessings are with you all.

  5. Shirley &Lee condolence:

    So sorry about your Mom. Barb she is now with God at peace watching over you and your wonderful family. You are in our thoughts and in our prayers. God Bless our deepest sympathy Shirley & Lee

  6. Cheryl condolence:

    My heart goes out to the family! Longevity is certainly a blessing, but death at any age is too soon. Death is unnatural and not a part of God’s original purpose, so for good reason the Bible calls death an enemy- one that God through Jesus Christ will soon eliminate (1 Corinthians 15:26). May this hope bring the family comfort during this difficult time. Click on the link for more comforting thoughts:
