To the family and friends of Dorothy please accept my deepest condolences. When we lose a loved one in death and brings nothing but grief pain and sorrow that's because God Psalms 83:18 never planned for us to die. Very soon his son Jesus Christ will resurrect the loved ones we have lost in death back to life Acts 24:15; John 5: 28,29. Jesus Christ will perform the resurrection for the loved ones we have lost in death back to life right here on a brand new Paradise Earth under his kingdom rule that he taught his followers to pray to come in the Lord's Prayer Matthew 6:10 no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5.

Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning. And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life. (Isaiah 26:19) This prophecy tells us that one day we will see our dead loved ones again in a new world! Please seek Jehovah god to see his promises fulfilled.....

Please accept our sincerest condolences on the loss of your mother and grandmother. I have thought often of Sue and think it is so terribly sad to lose both Dorothy and Sue so close in time. I also know each death brings back every other memory of losing someone. I was not certain of anyone's address but thought of all of you at Thanksgiving and Christmas those holidays are hard when someone you love has died. I think of all of you, I am glad Janet has Len because being the last survivor in a family is hard. Please know you are all in our thoughts and in my prayers. Winnie and the rest of the Mellingers
