My prayers go out to you and your family in your time of bereavement. I hope you can find comfort in this bible verse at Revelations 21:4 where it says, "and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have past away."

Dorlyn was a wonderful man. I will always remember him as so very kind, soft spoken, a man that really loved his family and would do anything for them. I have so many memories as a child spending time with Dorlyn and family..we were either at their house or they were at ours. You can all rest in your faith and know that he is with his King and in no more pain. May God comfort and bless you all. Love, Sandi and Steve
