    I would like to express my deepest and heartfelt condolences to the family of Dorothy Scarbrough. I am truly sorry for the lost that your family is feeling. When ever we lose such a caring and loving person, it is one of the hardest experiences that any of us can go thru. And because of that my thoughts and prayers are with your family. Take comfort in knowing that God never intent for us to deal with sickness or death. But have assure in this wonderful promise that God holds out to us. He promise each of us that very soon he is going to reunite us back with all those loved ones that we have lost. (John 5:28,29) Until that time, cherish all the wonderful memories that you have of Mrs. Dorothy. These precious memories will console the family in the day's ahead.
