    Dorothy you will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
    A donation has been made in your memory to the Lubbock Animal Shelter and Adoption Center.

  2. To the family, my deepest sympathy goes out to you. I have found the Bible to be a true source of comfort especially in times like this. Acts 24:15 is very comforting because there we can find a hope of a resurrection for our loved ones. Revelation 21:3-5 gives us a beautiful future to look forward to when Jehovah God does away with all causes of suffering including, pain mourning and death. I hope these scripture can bring you some comfort.
