Kilburn Family, my deepest sympathy on the passing of Dorothy. She was one special lady that I highly admired. When she was the cook at Riesbeck's we had a good time. We worked hard, but we had fun in the process. May God bring peace and comfort to all of you during this most difficult time, and you will be in my thoughts and prayers.
In Christian Love, Pandora

Dear family and loved ones, I was sorry to read about the death of Mrs. Kilburn. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. It has helped me and many others to know that the Bible promises that soon God “will swallow up death forever” (Isaiah 25:8) and that He will bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones (John 5 : 28, 29) . May “the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,” comfort you during your time of sadness (2 Corinthians 1: 3).
