  2. Uncle John, Larry, Ron, and families
    I was sorry to hear of Aunt Dorothy’s passing. It was a shock to hear the news, as she was so vibrant at my parents’ anniversary party last July. I will always remember her sweet nature and the gentle way she laughed.
    My deepest sympathies to you and your family.

  3. Susan & Family,

    We were glad to have met Dorthy & John at many of Susan & Ron’s parties. We always enjoyed them both & know she will be missed.
    When my Dad died we received the following message: Tonight when you look up.
    Don’t think of them as stars.
    Think of them as porch lights
    Welcoming your loved one safely home.
    It was of great comfort to us and we hope it will be to all of you also.
    With sincere sympathy,
    Jan Beeman & Paul Burstadt

  4. We just wanted you to know that we are praying for you all and sending hugs and love. Your mother was a special person and we always looked forward to visiting with her at your parties. We will miss her.

  6. John,
    Kay and I were saddened to hear of Dorothy’s passing. We regret missing her services, but we were in Florida at the time.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
    Stay strong and and find comfort in Bishop Pilla’s advice when he said ” No one is dead until they are no longer remembered by those they loved.”
    Vince & Kay Krist
