 Aunt Doris will always have an extra special place in our hearts.  She couldn't have been a better 1st babysitter for Dakota...

To all of the family,

I want to express our sincere sympathy to each and everyone of you.  I know how much your Mom meant to you all.  I remember many good times we had at your house when we young.  I remember your Mom's chocolate chip cookies and bags and bags of salty hard pretzels.  I know all of you will miss her dearly.  She was always such a kind person. May she rest in Peace.

Dear Jerry, Larry, Connie, Shirley, Georgann and Brenda,

At times like this It's sometimes hard to find the words to say - Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.  With Deepest Sympathy.

Dear Jerry & Family,
  On behalf of your old camping friends Vic & Betty Whitten, our family extends our deepest sympathy to you all. Doris was such a nice person. Even when we wouldn't see you guys for years, she would always act as though we had just spoken last week. I had just found out a couple of weeks ago from Brenda's sister-in-law Kate, that Doris had been ill. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. I miss "all" of Mom & Dad's camping family!! You were part of my family for many, many years.

Brian & Debbie (Whitten) Arnsberger

Dear Jerry, Larry, Connie, Shirley, Georgann and Brenda

Memories of the ones we've loved will cast their gentle glow, to grace our days and light our paths everywhere we go.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.  With Deepest Sympathy.

Love, Loretta & Mike Berkheimer

Dear Uncle Jerry & Family --

We just received the news today of Aunt Doris' passing.  Please know that, while I don't have extensive memories of Aunt Doris due to the geographic distance, the memories that I do have are all wonderful.

We love you, and are praying for you.
