News of Doriel's death was a sad moment for our family. However, we know she has gone to be with her dear Lord and we hope to see her after the resurrection where we will join in great worship. She was a worshipper. I hope we can carry on the legacy of praise and worship that she left behind. Condolences to the entire family. our prayers are with you.

To: Trevor and the entire Francis family, Julia and I would like to express our deepest condolences during this time of loss. As you may recall, Doriel was indeed dear and precious to our family, as she spent a great deal of time with us during the early day of the Crusaders. She was especially close to Jocelyn who has preceded her. May she rest in peace. May your family experience the rich encirclement of the Holy Spirit's presence during this difficult time. May the words of this song bring you comfort: "Under His wings i am safely abiding, though the night deepens and tempests are wild. Still I can trust Him, I know He will keep me, He has redeemed me, and I am His child.... Blessings. Vern and Julia Springer.
