I'm so sorry for your loss. Dixie and I were grade school friends. She would ride home with me on the school bus and we spent many evenings playing. When the sun went down and she needed to go home ( she lived just up the road) I would walk her half way and then we would both take off running to our homes looking all the time for the panther we were sure lurked in the woods somewhere. She was a wonderful friend and one I will always remember.

Dear Jim
We know it will be hard on you. Waiting they say is the hardest part. Waiting for Dixie to be resurrected back to the earth so she can continue to work in her garden and sit in the sunshine with you by her side. We don't know what it will be like in the new system that Jehovah speaks of in his word the Bible but we do know he will satisfy all our desires.
Know that Jehovah is grasping your right hand this very minute Isaiah 41:13.
You are in our prayers. Christian Love.
