The staff of Dorchester Funeral Home would like to extend its sincere condolences to the family of Mrs. Elizabeth Dennard.
Let not your heart be troubled. Ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions. If it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:1-3
