    This earth lost a great prayer warrior and precious Child of God this morning. But I rejoice that she is in the presence of the Lord that she loved and served for so long. I will never forget the many blessings that came my way through my dear friend. I will greatly miss those earnest prayers of hers for my family, but today she can put her arms around the ones I miss so greatly. My sincere regrets to her beloved family in their loss.

    Heaven has gained a wonderful new angel. I can only imagine all of those that have gone before waiting to greet her. We will cry for our loss even as we smile through our tears at how wonderful heaven must be. Family, I love you all and am here for anything that you might need now and in the future. I loved Dorothy and I love you all.
