Our heartfelt condolences to Dorothy's family! The death of a cherished loved one causes much anxiety. Our peace comes from coping with our loss and dealing with our grief. At Psalm 55:22, God offers the help we need. "Throw your burdens upon Jehovah, and he will sustain you. Never will he allow the righteous one to fall." God has given Jesus the power to bring Dorothy back to life "on the last day." (John 6:40). He offers Dorothy eternal life under perfect conditions. Allow him to grant you peace!

Dot you will be miss so much. I am sorry I did not get to see you before you went home to be with you father. I will remember all the talk we had together. I don't know who will keep me up to date with information. But I know you are in a better place now. You are looking down on us and saying y'all can have this crazy world. I am enjoying myself now. No more pain, no more worry. "I AM FREE".

My sincere condolences to Dorothy's family. I just wanted to share with you the Bible's promise of the resurrection .

Jesus said at John 11:25, 'I am the resurrection and the life'. Jehovah has granted his son Jesus Christ the power not only to resurrect the dead but also to impart eternal life.

At Revalation 1:18, Jesus calls himself “the living one,” who has “the keys of death and of the Grave.” Jesus is our hope for the living and the dead. He promised to open up the tombs and give the dead life, either in the heavens as his 'Corulers' or 'Everlasting Life' on earth ruled by his heavenly government.—Joh 5:28, 29; 2Pe 3:13.

So when Dorothy return to life, on this earth in perfect health wouldn't this be a grand reunion. This promise is a gift from Jehovah for all to read in their copy of the Bible at John 3:16, John 17:3, Romans 6:23 and Revelation 21:4.
