I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Dora's passing and extend my deepest sympathies to the family as they grieve her absence. She and Uncle Elmer were a favorite couple over the years with fond memories of our reunions and I know she will be missed by all who knew her. My prayers will be with you over these next weeks as you mourn and reflect upon her life. Love to all!

Uncle Elmer, Bud, Nancy, Chris, Tracy, it's been a long time since we've all been together, but some of my favorite memories are the family Christmas parties in your big house in much fun and lots of love. Please know Mom sends her love to all of you in her own special way. I love all of you and I hope you will have peace knowing Aunt Dora is with Our Lord.
