Blessings on the Douthett family. To Matt, I was called numerous times by Cranberry UMC members to make sure I saw your grandmother's obituary. They are concerned for you and your family and lift up prayers and condolences.
My prayer for you Matt, and your family, is that you may continue to experience an ever deepening sense of the comforting and strengthening presence of God.
Peace, John - interim pastor, Cranberry UMC

I meet her when Roy and her son Bill had the Ben Franklin store in Clarion they gave me my first real job at age 13. And she was the kindest person you could ever meet...even to a young kid . I was always impressed with her gentle way she would talk to people. My sympathy goes out to Bill and his family, I can only imagine their sorrow, I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers!
