Ron and Garry, I just learned that your mother recently passed away. I was saddened by the news but will always remember her as she was when I was in high school. She was my boyfriend's mom, who was always nice to me! :) Hugs to both of you. It's always hard to lose our mothers. Take care. Debbie (Frew) O'Connor

A friend for over 40 years, part of which she was my mother-in-law for 15. There is no way to describe such a great lady except to say she'll be sorely missed by us. I will continue to pass "Dorothy" fun stories on to my grandchildren (her great-grandchildren) and have them know what a wonderful woman she was. I'm thankful for all the years we have shared. Please accept our deepest sympathies.

Love from Colin and Melody Curtis

Hello Underwoods. Condolences from the Somers in Texas. I always felt close to Uncle Raymond and Aunt Dorothy. I miss them both. I'm so glad that I got to see Dorothy at my brother's funeral a couple of years ago. Sorry that I was unable to make it. Please cherish the memories. You are in our prayers.

Marc, Mary, Seth and Luke Somers.
