    Not certain you will remember us, but sorry to read about the passing of your Mother. Always remember the good times you had with her.

    May the promise found at Isaiah 25:8 bring some comfort in the death of Dorothy Jean Disney. “He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces.” Just imagine no more pain and grief over the death of a love one! By means of the Kingdom that Jesus Christ taught us to pray for God will remove sickness, old age and death from the human family.
