  1. Pat and Mike — I’m sure sorry about your mom. I’ll never forget how kind your folks were to me as a kid in the old neighborhood. You should be proud of the dedication you showed and sacrifices you made these last years. Hope all is well with you and your families. Take care and hope we run into each other again one of these days. Larry

  4. Pat and Mike all my prayers and thoughts go with you and your families. Your mother left a lasting and wonderful legacy filled with kind and loving memories.

  5. Gene and Dorothy if you look in the dictionary would be the gentle couple.Certainly their love story and the respect they had for each other and everyone else gave me a life lesson.As a young mom they took me into their sat nite bridge games. I looked forward to those nights.She loved her grandkids and enjoyed their growing up in such a tough time(compared to their childhoods).My sons and I talk about them in such a great memory way. Dorothy always was an invisible support,never in the front but always there to guide. She is the definition of lady to me. I took her to cripple creek about 6 years ago and she was winning nickels everywhere-she laughed and then shared all of her nickels with those sitting close to her, she was embarrased that not everyone was winning–so dorothy! Please love her memories to keep her life alive! thanks-kay

  6. Such a lovely lady!� She lived a loving life, welcoming all into her home.� She raised two amazing sons of whom she was so proud.� Somewhere Gene is smiling with her by his side, and there is a brighter star in the heavens tonight, heralding the long life of this good woman.� My thoughts are with you in this time of loss.� May we all celebrate Dorothy’s life as she lived hers–with love.
