    Sister, I will love and miss you for the rest of my life. I love how we could go days and weeks without talking and pick up like we never left off. When I see you in heaven one day, that’s how it will be. We will pick up like no days have passed. I know tomorrow will be one of the hardest days of my life. I love you so much and already miss you terribly. I’m glad that you are with Dad and I know you both will keep each other company. Love you so much. Until we meet again…

    To the family and friends of Dorothy Forbes-Hood; Sad to say I did not know Ms Forbes-Hood personally, however when I read in her obituary that she loved to listen to God’s word, I wanted to share with you the comfort, strength, and hope that is found in the Bible. Please read for comfort the verse found in Psalms 34:18, for strength, Isaiah 40:28-31, and for hope, John 5:28,29. I pray that these verses will help you in your grief as much as they have helped me. Sincerely, Vicki
