Hi Debbie,
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. I remember her well from when she was our Campfire Girls leader many years ago. My sympathy to you and your family.

Doris will be truly missed by all who knew her. In the days ahead and as you gather to remember her life legacy, may our God of comfort, Jesus, hold you all in the palm of His hand. Cherish the many warm and fond memories that you share in your hearts. 'I will cling to the old rugged cross, and exchange it someday for a crown'.

Dear family. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible books of Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29. Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, pain, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you a measure of relief during this difficult time.

Through the different seasons of life we have had a firm foundation and we thoughtfully share.

We are so sorry for your deep loss. Your Mom was a wonderful and kind woman. I will always remember the good times we had and laughter. I will always remember your mom and my mother talking of their lovely childhood memories together. I hope you take comfort that your mom is at peace now in heaven.
