Dearest Doris and family....I am so sorry to hear of Lynn's passing. I am praying for our Heavenly Father to touch and heal the void in each one's heart and fill it with His love. Much love to you all!

Dear Family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dear loved one. Our loving Creator never planned for death to be part of his original plan. There is such a loving scripture found at Revelation 21:3 & 4 which reads: With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, And they will be his people, And God himself will be with them, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The Former things have passed away I hope these words help you find comfort and also give you hope for our near future.

I am sending my thoughts and prayers to my family in North Carolina, especially to My loving, Sweet, kind and generous Aunt Doris and her children and grandchildren and son in law.... I know we have rarely seen each other since childhood but you are all still in my thoughts more than you know. I love you all so much and send my most sincerest condolences. With Love, DeeDee
