My condolences to the Wilson Family, on your loss. Dorothy was a very dear friend in past years. My children loved her as an Aunt. and she felt like my Sister for many years. I am sorry I was unable to attend her funeral. God bless all of you.

So sorry to hear of Dorothy's passing. She and Pee Wee worked at the Banner together and we just lost him on Aug. 17. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dorothy's family during this great time of sorrow

Dear family and friends of Dorothy Marie Wilson, I am deeply sorry for the loss of your loved one. I would like to share some biblical information that can bring comfort, the Bible text of Acts 24: 15 says "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." It brings us comfort when a loved one passes away and also hope to be able to see our loved ones who have died again. On the website that is available in your language, you can find more consoling information that could help you in these difficult times.
