Offering my condolence to the family and friends of Dorothy Gray. As you cherish the many fond memories of Mrs. Gray, reflect on the time when aging, sickness & death, will be conditions of the past! (Revelation 21:3,4; 1Corinthians 15: 26) This is what our loving God Jehovah has promised and Jesus Christ himself guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 26:19)
May God’s word provide comfort at this time and in the days ahead, as we await the fulfillment of his promises.......

My family's prayers and love to the Grays & Woodhouses. My "Aunt Dorothy" was a precious lady who exuded the love and grace of Christ. My childhood has many memories of her kindness to me, her beautiful paintings and, of course, all of the stories my grandfather told me of their childhood together.

To the Gray Family:

I was sorry to learn of Dorothy's passing. I wanted to send you a small note of sympathy.

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.
She will always be remembered. As you share the stories and the memories of how she lived, her life and how very much she meant, may you find comfort… (author unknown)
