Dear Kristina,
Good morning! We were very sorry to hear this morning that your beloved Mother already left this earth! The priest said an intention for the repose of your Mom at the Mass. We had been praying for her recovery, but evidently, God loved your dear Mother more than anyone else could and wanted her with Him!!! May the compassionate and tender-hearted Lord comfort you as no one else can!!! You and your family are in our thoughts
and prayers.
With love and petitions on your behalf,
Sr. Mary T. and the Salesian Sisters at Provincial House. P.S. All the Provincial Superiors, including Sr. Martina and all the Superios of the whole Province are out of town at a special meeting. Sr. Guadalupe Medina is substituting Sr. Martina for this short time, until Monday.

Uncle Wilbur, David, Julie & Kristy,
We are keeping you all in our prayers. We didn't get to see Aunt Dorothy very often but the times we did were precious! She always had a twinkle in her eye & a grin. A true Proverbs 31 woman. Our loss is heavens gain.

My Sister, Dorothy, was always up-beat. She had a calm
way of going about things. I can't remember her ever
being in trouble for doing the wrong thing. We will all miss
her calm and careful way. Thanks for being my Sister. Jim

Dorothy was a very special member at University Place Christian Church and one of my favorite women there. What a gentle, kind soul.

David, Mr. Patton, and family
David, you may not remember me, we went through Edgemere together, Cub Scouts, and played baseball together as well as singing together in the Y.M.C.A. choir. Through all those years your mom was always a wonderful influence in my life, always a loving mother to you and your sisters, but she also always made me feel good when we were together. Your loss will be felt for some time, as we lost my mom January 28, 2012. May God be with you and your entire family at this time of your great loss and bring you all comfort. Tony Chiconas Edmond, Oklahoma.
