Condolence & Memory Journal

Sorry to hear of Dorothy's passing - remember visiting she and Howard on the farm with my grandparents when I was a child - she was a sweet sweet lady and a good friend to my mother in later years...

Our thoughts are with you, Jan, and the family. She lived a long good life with years and years of good memories she left as a legacy. May you feel the comforting arms of Jesus around you during this time of sadness. She was a lovely person. A great mom and grandma. God bless,
lin and jerry and family

My condolences Jan Munson. Your parents were always your biggest advocates. I remember spending time with them, you and the children on a number of occasions. They were terrific with the grands...always active in their lives. The world has lost a wonderful person. May she rest in peace and God give you the strength and courage to get through such a sad time in your life.
