Dear Alviar Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I considered Dorina a dear friend, sister and spiritual mom whom I will miss very much. There is so much that should be said at this time, but no words seem adequate. Yet, with all my heart I hope you will find comfort in Jehovah‘s loving promise, “Friends of our God, though they may pass away, will never be forsaken nor forgotten . Her faithfulness to the end shows she was a friend of Jehovah, she is in Jehovah’s loving memory and in due time from death he will awaken her. He will call and she will answer, she will live at his command ... Jn.5:28,29 Job 14:15 Along with all of you, I look forward to warmly embrace and welcome her back in Paradise and in perfect health.

I was struck with sadness when I received the news of Your loss, the Alviar Familys beloved Matriarch, Sis Dorina Alviar. So, it is with deep sympathy and my heartfelt hope that Jehovah, will comfort & strengthen you through this untimely time of sorrow. Psalms 31:7

Dorina was one of the first Witnesses I met; I remember my first impression of her: that she was beautiful inside and out--and she always stayed that way!
Sleep well, Dear Sister, till we meet again in the coming paradise on earth . . .
