Messages of Condolence

  1. Michael, Joe and families…Please know that I am thinking of you all and wish you some peace and solice in losing your Dear Mom. She was an incredible woman and I know a wonderful Mom to you boys. She and your Dad were so good together in life and now I am sure they are happy to be reunited in death. You all will keep her memory alive in your hearts forever. God Bless you and know that you boys will always have a special place in my heart…♥

  2. Dear Barto Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences at this time. Something that I have found to be a great source of comfort are the thoughts expressed in the Bible at John 5:28,29 where we see that God is going to bring our loved ones back to life. Also at Revelation 21:4 we see that God is going to eliminate all of the causes for why we deal with sorrow, pain and even death itself. it is my sincere hope that these thoughts bring your family comfort at this time. Once again I am so sorry for your loss.

  3. So very sorry for your loss. We only saw them a couple of times here in Michigan. They were lovely people. We’re sure they will be missed.

  4. I hold so many wonderful memories of Aunt Doris (and Uncle Mike.) Everytime they came to visit relatives in Michigan, I could not wait, as I knew so much laughter and memories would be shared. She was a true a lady and loved her family dearly. Please know that she will be in our hearts forever and memories of her will become our treasured gifts. My God comfort you all at this saddened time in your life.

  5. Dear Barto Family

    I was so sorry to hear that Doris passed away. She was so full of energy that she left a mark whereever she was. It seemed like yesterday that Mike married Doris and she brought that energy to our family. I remember her as fun loving and always authentic. This was so, even when Mike was very sick at the end of his life and she was told of her own diagnosis.

    I will always remember Doris and Mikie would often drop in with suprise visits when we lived in Saginaw, MI, and of course at the family reunions. Mom and Dad loved it when she and Mike visited them in Indiana as well. She held her family and Mike’s family close. We are all better because we knew her.

    In deepest sympathy,
    Maruschak Cousin

  6. I’m so sorry about your mother. I’m sure she is happy now, joining your father. We really had some great times together that I will never forget. I’m not able to make it today but, I’ll always remember our good times we had dancing and having fun. She was always lots of fun.

  7. I’m so sorry to hear about your mother. I’m not able to make it this evening as I’m not feeling so good. I’ really feel she is happy as she is joining your father. We really had some great times together. Your mother was the life of the party, she always had us laughing. We really enjoyed line dancing together. I’ll always remember her and how great she was and so much fun.
