    It’s been over 9 years without you. So much has changed in my life.....in the lives of our family. There is still a huge void that nothing & no one will ever fill. I miss you Aunt Doreen. My mom misses you so much. We want to pick up the phone and call you. I’m still so confused as to why our family has experienced so much loss. We are a fraction of what we used to be. A broken vase that just hasn’t quite been put back together right. We try, but too many pieces (people) are missing. There are too many holes. I love you so much. I wish you could just come back & I’m sorry if that’s selfish. I hope Heaven is everything we’ve ever talked about. Love you forever.

    This hour marks the end of my first year without Doreen. This has been such a time of transition for me. For so many years she and I had grown to be a part of each other’s lives and in this past year I’ve had to learn to be self sufficient and function without her as a helpmate. My father told me what it was like to go through the first year, and he was right in so many ways. I continue to cherish my memories of the years Doreen and I had together. I am moving on with my life. The future is bright. I believe it is what she would have hoped for me. God rest her soul.

    Aunt Doreen, my heart is breaking everyday without you. You were more than my aunt but like a best friend to me! I love you so much and thank you for teaching me about the Lord and being a wonderful example to me. I'm having to learn how to adjust to life without you. I miss you so much. I miss getting our iced coffees and our great conversations. I miss going out to lunch with you. I miss just picking up the phone to give you a call. A big void has been left in my life. I really needed you here.. I'm not sure why God chose to take you from us but I have to accept His will. It's not easy though. Someday we will have all these answers. For now It's like we are seeing things through a cloudy glass...we only see in part...but then, we will see Him face to face, and we will know. See you soon Aunt Doreen. I love you!

    Paul and Family,

    No matter how sick, how old, or how troubled, when our loved ones are no longer with us, we grieve deeply and our lives are changed forever! . A part of us is gone and will never be the same! My heart goes out to you all.:
    John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.

    Please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. The lost of a love one is the most painful experience we have in life. There is a void that cannot be filled. Rest assured the Bible promises we will hold them again and enjoy their smiling faces forever. It is God's purpose that no one dies ever again and everyone live on earth in Paradise. God never wanted anyone to die but to live happy healthy lives forever on earth. We have to exercise faith in his Son, Jesus Christ, to gain these blessings. God gives us his Word so we can gain comfort now and have hope for the future.

    Doreen was the dearest, sweetest and best sister and friend I could ask for. I will miss her every day for the rest of my life, but take comfort in knowing we will be reunited one day. Until then my dear sister.

    Doreen was a soft spoken, and gracious woman, that I regret not getting to know better. We all know that death is part of life..but we don't live that way...we always think we have tomorrow to do what we should have done today. We lost her so early, but, rejoice in the fact that she was so ready to meet her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ...what a comfort to know she is in His arms. My life is richer because of the short time that I knew Doreen. I do have a promise...I will meet her again. See you soon, Doreen!!!

    The memorial service was wonderful and as I looked around the room I could truly feel how special Doreen was to all who knew her. From the pictures being shown I could see a very special lady that had an enormous heart, love for her family and desire to live life the right way. This is genuinely a good person I thought to myself. When people began speaking of their memories of Doreen I felt sad that I wasn't fortunate enough to have actually met her prior to her passing. Paul although this was a very sad occasion, I thank you for the opportunity to have seen a tiny glimpse of the life of your dear wife. Please find peace in knowing that you will see her and be together again.

    I was blessed to have spent the last couple of weeks of Doreen's life with her. Before she got too weak to speak, we had a conversation that I will never forget. Doreen would like everyone to enjoy the simple things in life like the smell of a flower, a pretty sunrise or to just be able to get out of bed each morning. She also told me to always let my loved one's know how much I love them. I had only met Doreen 2 times before this but I can tell you I bonded with her immediately. Her faith in God was very evident in her last days on Earth. I will cherish my daily visits with Doreen for the rest of my life. Rest in peace and I will see you again!

    It was my privilege and honor to have Doreen as my wife for our 22 years together. She was a true Proverbs 31 woman, a helpmate, inspiration to me and counselor. I will cherish her memory and miss her, but look forward to the day when we will be together again, with the Lord.
