Thank you for doing this remembrance for Doreatha.
I have been smiling all day as I look at her beautiful photo and share her wonderful story with friends. She lived a life of loyalty and favor to Jehovah and I know she is precious in his memory record.
What a joy it will be to embrace her in the new earth and to see that fabulous smile and sweet spirit again.

I am so sorry to hear of Doreatha's passing. She was beautiful, sweet, classy and seriously devoted to serving the true God Jehovah, helping others and supporting her family, whom she loved dearly. How wonderful it would be to greet her and her parents in the resurrection into a earthly paradise. Soon we will see them all again.

To the Edmonds family heartfelt condolences. Doreatha was my hairstylist some years ago.She was doing my hair when she went and visted with the Jacksons. She shared those beautiful pictures of the Jacksons with me. We always had good intelligent conversation. She was a beautiful person; inside and out. I loved her beautiful red hair. I often thought of her often;especially when I would pass her home.I am sure you all have beautiful memories of herthat will help you during this time.

My deepest heartfelt condolences to Doreatha's family and friends.

I met my friend Doretha while attending elementary school. We became childhood friends. She was truly a beautiful person. My fondest memories of her was her beautiful smile, her kind words "even though she never said much"... and simply, just her joy & positive uplifting personality. I will truly miss my Childhood Friend.....
