Dear Uncle Bernie and Darpel Family,
Autumn and I wish our deepest sympathy to all of you. I made sure Mom was informed and she sends her wishes to you also.
Dear Bernie and Janet, I will be praying for all of you during this changing time, It has been awhile since seeing all of you @ Tuesday Nite Mass. Bernie and Janet, I remember your wonderful personality. Bernie, you always had a joke to tell and a blessing for all. We always knew when Dot was at mass because she had her special seat cushion. Sincere Condolence, Mary Jo
Dear Bernie and Lois, How sorry I am to hear about Dottie! What a great lady she was! I know you will miss her terribly, but am happy for her being in Jesus’ arms. Love and blessings to your family.
Bernie, Janet and family:
What a pleasure it was to know Dot! Our prayers are with your family.
Dear Bernie and Janet and family, how i remember fondly you all at Tuesday night mass with your blessed presesnce. The light and humor you brought was contagious and is missed. Dot in her quiet manner made her beautiful presence known to all who encountered her and spoke with her, i am thankful i had that opportunity. Another angel in Heaven to pray to, Love, Theresa.
Dear Bernie and Family,
I am sorry for your loss. Dorothy helped me over the years with our family’s genealogy research. She was so patient with all of my questions. I’ll keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Bernie, This is Minnie Mehuron. I retired from Hyde Park Center as a full-charge bookeeper in 1998. I have fond memories of many times talking with you and Dottie there; I shall miss her too. May God comfort you and your family in this time of loss and adjustment. Bless her soul in its ongoing, eternal unfoldment. Sincerely, Minnie
Dear Bernie and Families,
