Just wanted to extend our condolences for your loss...I saw this picture of Dorothy and it made me think of Revelation 21:3,4..."death will be no more, neither will mourning nor sickness nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." She looks so young and beautiful in this picture, just the way God meant her to look always...I look forward to a time when I can meet her in person, & I'll remember her face so I can find her in God's paradise.

God strengthens us by giving us the "power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Psalm 46:1 says: "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7) jw.org

Terry you were so blessed to have had your mother for so many years.
I lost my mother in March. She was 87. I fill like I lost my best friend. I miss her
daily. But we all have wonderful memories of our mothers.
I will pray for you.
