  2. We are truly sorry to hear of Dodie’s death. She was a good friend for over 30 years.

  4. Dosie,
    You were a Queen, a Regal Lady. You added dignity, warmth and
    friendship to our Ohio K of C activities. Both you and Bob were a gift to the Ohio K of C and warm friends. I’m sure God has pre-
    pared a special place for you in His Heavenly Kingdom.

    Our deepest condolences to your family.

  6. Bob, Jim and Members of Dodie’s family,
    My sympathy at the death of your mother. When I was K of C State Chaplain when Charlie Reisbeck was State Deputy and your dad was a State Officer – I have many fond memories of our time together. Your mother was always there and it was always a delight to visit with her.

  8. Dear Sears 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. Also at Revelation 21:4 where 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.
