We love you Aunt Dot! Our world will never be the same, now that you’ve been called home.

Thank you for sharing all these beautiful memories of your mother, my Aunt. Aunt Dot was a wonderful person and she had such a generous heart. Aunt Dot came to the 2 most significant events in my life. She was there when I got married to my husband Jesse, and she came to the baptism of my kids Jesse and Mia. It meant so much to me, and to us. Thank you for allowing me a small glimpse of your treasured memories. I so much enjoyed the wedding pictures. With all my love. I leave you all of my peace and may peace be in your hearts.

I am so sorry for the loss of dear Dorothy. May you find comfort in the Bible’s hope with regard to those that have fallen asleep in death. At John 5:28, 29 we learn that one day “all” in the grave will live again. Then we learn at 1 Corinthians 15:26 that “death, is to be brought to nothing.” We are also assured that until that time, you, as the grieving family, are invited by our Creator, Jehovah God, to “throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7; Psalm 83:18) Take care dear ones and please accept my sincerest condolences.
