My condolences to the family. I am Joan's first cousin, and through no fault of our own, we never met. Joan's mom was my Aunt, and Joan's grandfather, William Dorsey was my grandfather. So, we were first cousins. Sad that we never got to meet, but I hope you find peace Joan.

You don’t know me, my name is Charles Sibley. I’m sorry to here about your loss. May Jehovah the "God of Comfort" bring you comfort and peace at this difficult time (2 Corinthians 1:3 & 4). "He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds." Psalm 147:3. You can find similar comforting verses at sorry for your loss.
