"Fortson family, I am sure your memory of Doris have created pain due to losing her in death a year ago; however, do not lose hope. Keep the promise from our Creator alive! Remember_  “Your dead will rise ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.”(Isaiah 26:19)  "He will swallow up death forever…(Isaiah 25:8). Exquisite joy it will be to see our love ones again!"

"Mother, I am thankful for the loved we shared for my 48 years; a love that will be with me for a life time. Thank you for giving yourself  unselfishly and always believing in me. I Love You more than words can say."

"I want to offer my condolences to the Fortson family. It truly hurts when a love one die, even Jesus wept when Lazarus died. Jesus promised at John 5:28,29 that all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out and our Creator promised to get rid of death forever at Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever..." I hope these words give you comfort."

"God knows BEST Aunt Dot!
He knew you should not suffer anymore
God took you home....
Doesn't mean we won't miss your gentle soul....
I love you!

An Old Indian Prayer
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there,I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am the diamond glints on snow
.I am the Sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn's rain
.When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
.I am the soft star that shines at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
.I am not there........."
