sorry to hear of your wife/mother's death. I will remember her as a kind and gentle lady who was a hard worker at home.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.

Dear Paul, Charmaine,Nettie and Family,
We Christians are not afraid
of the night of death because our heavenly home is "just on the other side." I love the scripture that says "To
be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord." There's no doubt Dottie has seen the face of her Lord, what
blessed assurance for us that await that JOY. My prayers are with you all as you grieve the separation, but rejoice in Dottie's
life of service and love to her family, church and community.
She will be missed by all who were blessed to call her
Love & Prayers,
Virginia Manning and Family
Dear Paul & Family,
My parents were Vic & Betty Whitten who are celebrating in heaven with Dot. I am so sorry for your loss, but we do know
they are in a much better place and we will see them again. I ran into Betty Wert a few weeks ago and she had told me that
Dot was not doing well. We reminisced about old friends from Farm Women Group #13, many of whom are no longer with us. I have
so many fond memories of Dot. You are all in my thoughts & prayers.
Debbie (Whitten) Arnsberger
