"My deepest sympathy to the Stephenson family. I delivered Meals to Dorothy each Monday. She was the sweetest person I know. I loved talking with her upon each visit. I always hugged her before I left. I told her so many times that she reminded me of my Mother.

Dorothy, I will miss you each Monday when I deliver those Meals."

"Dear Stephenson family, I am sorry for your pain, and loss. You can find real comfort in what God has promised, such as in John 5:28,29 -He promises that he is going to resurrect all those who have ever died, back to life again here on earth. And all the things that cause us sorrow, pain, and even death, will be gone forever. You can read about this in Revelation 21:3,4, and 1 Corinthians 15:26. To learn more about God's promises, go to"
