    You are gone, but will never be forgotten. Words seem inadequate as our hearts ach from the news of the passing of our beloved Dolora, the news was very difficult to hear. Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection the life. He who believes in me will live even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” John 11:25-26 NIV We are in prayer for each of you and share in your loss.

    “God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, nor seorrow, nor crying, nor pain. For the former things are passed away.” Revelations 21:4 Our family extends to your entire family our sincerest sympathy with great tenderness and love. Love Sheryl Cherry, Jamal Brown and Myracle Lowry
