  1. Dear Paul and my beloved Mary Elizabeth,

    My heart cries with you but oh, the reunion that will come! What a time of rejoicing that will be. Until then I am confident that God will guide you, comfort you, protect you and direct you. May His gentle peace be your comfort as you travel on with Jesus. He is sufficient. My love and prayers enfold you. Jean

  2. Paul, Mary and family,
    So sorry for your loss. I did not hear the news until this past Thursday. Dorcas will truly be missed. You are all in my prayers and I ask God to comfort you as only He can. I look forward to the day that we will all be together again. We sorrow but not as those who have no hope. You continue in my prayers. Ann
