The last twenty years of Dorner's life were clouded by the dementia of his youngest son - a youth of the brightest promise, who, while pursuing his gymnasium studies, was overtaken with the disease from which he has never recovered. To those who knew the intensely domestic and affectionate nature of the man, the manner in which he bore this trial was a touching revelation of the depth of his Christian faith and resignation. And when to this af?iction was added his own physical suffering, his Christian character still bore the test. As Professor Kleinert says, in his memorial address before the Berlin Faculty, In all this no complaint passed over his lips, no painful word concerning his bodily pain. Scarcely a quiver of the hand, or a tear in the eye, betrayed his mental suffering, when he had to surrender to other hands one after another of the official duties and voluntary labours of benevolence which had grown into his very heart. He suffered not like a Stoic, with a heart steeled against the Medusa gaze of a brazen fate. He suffered like a child of God that receives from the Father's hand, with unwavering trust, even what is hard to bear; like one that has peace in the atonement and has hope reaching beyond death.
