We are so sorry for your loss Cheryl, Connie and Ken. I had such a nice visit with your mother about a year ago and will never forget it. She and your father were such a big part of our lives and they both are now together again in heaven. What a beautiful thing! Wish we were able to make it to the funeral. Love, peace, comfort and blessings to you all! Arlene Kennedy Wunderlin and family

Your mom had the sweetest smile and most infectious laugh! I have many fond memories of living down the street from all of you. We all had such wonderful parents...a great golf & bridge-playing group. Please accept my sympathies and feel my hugs from afar.

Well, I have so much to share about my Dottie and Don. I had the pleasure of caring for Her and Don from 2016-2019. I was one of the 1st people they met. It's an honor for me!! I have many fond memories of them both, but Dottie was like a momma to me. A few memories; I used to go into her room to visit her on my dinner breaks (when I could get one). I would take my dinner in there to sit with her and surprise her with her special chips or her popcorn or her cookies or her vanilla ice cream with her chocolate syrup that she just loved. The shows we would watch together. She loved sports and crime solving shows. I too, loved those times with her (and she gave the best hugs- and her sweet smile)!! She will be GREATLY missed by me however, she is dancing with Joy with her reunification with her Don.. She missed him so! Thank you for sharing your parents with me and may our God comfort you through this difficult time and forever more.
