Dolly was dearly loved and will be deeply missed. While words fail to capture the pain of losing her, I pray that you find comfort in knowing that she is resting peacefully, safe in the memory of our Heavenly Father. Our Heavenly Father tells us; Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness. Isaiah 41:10. God will be with you and help you through this grievous time because he loves you and understands your pain. Heartfelt prayers and loving thoughts are with the family during your time of sorrow.
