I have know Dorothy Chandler since 3rd grade. I have had the privilege of being in her carpool as a child and working with her as an adult in the church archives. Wonderful woman with a really sharp mind. My children knew her as meemaw.

Losing a loved one is never easy, but our loving god promises to give the strength and courage you'll need to endure, and to cope with the pain of your loss. He also promises to hold your hand every step of the way. (Isaiah 40:29, 41:10, 13)
