I spent the afternoon with my youngest daughter Kim and my granddaughter, Lainie. We taped pictures of mom and the family for the memorial this coming Saturday. Rather than being a sad occasion, we found ourselves laughing at the happy memories we shared of many events.

To Aunt Dorothy\'s family.
It\'s really hard, so may times you want to tell her something and you can\'t. Or you forget, for a mament that she\'s gone..... and when you remember again, it makes you feel like you\'re on your own in the world.
But you\'re not on your own. You have people who love you.
God LOVES you.
And even though she is gone to the realm of perfect peace, you can be sure that her love is with all of you still.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Love Karen and Bob

Thank you mom for your warm thoughts. Even though I knew this was coming, it was still incredibly difficult. I am comforted knowing that mom is in a better place with many of her loved ones that she missed. We will be together again one day.

Dotti and family.....so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a very gracious lady and well loved by all who knew her. Death is a sadness we have to bear, but our God is a loving God and knows what is best for all of us. Your mom is now out of her suffering and at peace with other loved ones. Be glad for that and of all the time that you had with her.

I would like to express my deepest sympathies to the family. I know what it is like to lose a loved one in death and very little can ease the pain. My family and I however, have found comfort in understanding the truth about death and the prospect of seeing our dead loved ones again. In the bible, Jehovah God promises to resurrect those who have died, to live again on earth.  Yes, according to Isaiah 26:19, "your dead ones will live again. They will awake and cry out joyfully." Additionally, at Psalm 37:10,11 & 29 it states that the righteous ones will live on earth forever in peace, after God has removed all wickedness. Finally, there will NEVER be anymore pain or death. (Revelation 21:4) What a joy it will be to reunite with our dead loved ones with no worries of ever losing them again. I hope this prospect comforts your hearts in this sad time.

My prayers are truly with you and I hope these beautiful scriptures are able to bring some warmth to your hearts as they have been able to bring to mine.

Twinkle and family
Sincere love and condolences to all. Little Dorothy, as we lovingly called her is enjoying her family in heaven. I will always remember her gentle ways and kindness to all.

Dotti Smythe left a message on January 30, 2014:

Thank you, Mary Lou. You always know the right thing to say to make me feel better. I do take comfort knowing that mom is once again reunited with your mom and Martha is probably teasing her.

Thank you Jen. Mom was a lot of fun. I miss our cards games.

Dotti -my thoughts will be with you as you and your family as you go through this sad time - I know how very much you loved your mom and how well you took care of her

God bless my mother and welcome her home. I will miss her dearly but I take comfort in knowing she suffers no more and she has joined many loved ones who went before her.
