Dear Sid and family: I am not sure if you remember me from high school, but saw Elaine Blanton's post on facebook that your wife had passed away. Just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. Sincerely, Betty Powell Elkins

My deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear Dorothy. May the fond memories shared and the resurrection hope Jesus spoke about at John 5:28,29 be a source of comfort for each of you during this truly difficult time.
