Message: Ruth, David, and family, I once had a co-worker who told me her mother had taught her alot in life, but she never taught her how hard it was to lose her mother. I agree with her 100%. I can remember Aunt Dorine's face light up when she talked about you. It was very evident that she was so proud and loved all of you. You will go through many lonely days ahead, but you as I, have the assurance that your mom is in a much better place. May God give you strength and courage to face the many difficult days ahead. Some are better than others, but with our Lord's assurance, they actually turn out to be good. With Sympathy, Kathy

Message: Dear Ruth & David, I was very sorry to hear about the passing of your Mother. I have such fond memories of PaPa and Mrs. Reaves from the Burger Bar. They always had such patients with us Boys! On thing I remember most about your Mother was her gentle laugh and kindness. Even when she was making a "Dill Pickle Fizz" I know your family will miss her, but just think of the joy she had when she walked though those Pearly gates the other day. My prayers are with you and may God give you comfort. Even though she is not here in body, she will live forever in your memories. God Bless, Larry Coulter

Message: My church has a monthly program at Warren Assisted Living. This is where I met Mrs. Dorine. I attend as the song director. Mrs. Dorine attended the services and we discovered that we were related (Garner side) and that she knew my grandmother Lettie Garner Mitchell Nutt. I had the pleasure of knowing Mrs. Dorine for several months and we called each other "Cousin". She normally came for Landmark's program but was not in attendance last month. I did not know she had passed away until I read it on Frazer's site this morning. I would have been at the funeral yesterday if I had of known. To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Dorine was a real special person and will be missed.
