What a blessing for the family and many others (my family and I included) to have this lovely Christian lady of 100 earthly years among us! Though her earthly presence will be missed, we would not begrudge her being in the full Presence of the Lord. Dorothy and her family, along with mine and a few others , helped to establish Fair Haven Christian Church in 1953 and she was FAITHFUL all her life. May Our Lord give Peace, Comfort, Strength and Grace to the family in the coming weeks.
