  1. Dorothy, while we have never met I feel close enough to write this note. I am the editor of The Henryetta Hens Newsletter which keeps you up to date with your fellow “HENS”. Your sister Helen and your friend Diana Wagnor Berkenmyer have kept me up to date with your addresses.

    Condolences on the loss of Stan are sent by and on behalf of the subscribers of the Newsletter.

    I personally will pray and ask the readers of the Newsletter to pray for your smooth transition to a life without Stan. Sixty-One years of marriage is a record.

    Editor Hen of ’51

  2. Just read of you dad’s death. Have fond memories of the high school years together, My God be with yo all during this time. Grace and Peace, Chuck

  3. Our heartfelt condolences to Dorothy and the family. Stanley Childers certainly did more good than harm over the course of his lifetime. Made his mark, and always left things better than he found them. And the world is a better place for it.

    Your passport will be the blessing of Him in whose footsteps you have trodden, unto whose sick you have ministered, for whose children you have cared, and for all whose lives you have touched and changed forever better.

    God Speed!

  4. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Dorothy, Jerry and the family. Stan left behind a lot of wonderful memories.

    Our daughter Rella, never forgot what a great service he did our family when he worked at the eye clinic. He was off duty and she wasn’t even his patient, yet he took the time to diagnose her mono and made sure she got to the hospital. It was just one example of his generous and kind nature.
