Dear Dewell family,
I'm very sorry for your loss and hope you'll accept my condolence and deep regrets for I lost my entire family to this enemy death and I'd like to share where I found help at that time. I found hope and comfort in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 for there it tells us we'll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and at Isaiah25:8 we're told that this enemy death will be swallowed up forever. I 'm able to cope with my loss with these scriptures and others and able to get through each day because now I know I'll see my love ones again and so can you. I wanted to share this with you now when hope and comfort is needed in hopes that this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know that I do share your grief and hope you'll feel free to let me know if I accomplished my purpose., Hoping to hear from you. Sincerely, GM

I have many fond memories of the times that I spent with Ms. Dewell. She was a vivid storyteller and blessed me with many, which continue to bring a smile to my face. She was always willing to lend an ear and help others in any way she could, especially her neighbors on Ridley Street. Her wit was as remarkable as she was. I loved this beautiful lady and have missed spending time with her. If you had the pleasure of knowing her, you were truly blessed.
She adored her family and spoke of them often. I know you will all miss her and I wish you much comfort during this time.

We have had some wonderful times together and I have so many fond memories that I cherish. God bless each of you and give you peace during this time. Love, Doris Pierce Johnson
