    Sending our deepest sympathy to all of Dot’s family. We remember her working at the drug store and really got to know her when she came to Lebanon. The yard sales and craft shows we went to were so much fun with her. I still cook her wonderful California vegetable casserole and see her name at the top of the recipe card every year. Everyone who knew her will miss her greatly. May the memory of all your times together get you thru this difficult time. Love, Keith and Debbie Dawes

    I am deeply sorry for the loss of your family member dear to you, Dorothy M. Dyll. My heartfelt sympathy goes to your entire family during this difficult time. But it is heartwarming to learn that God feels for you and he longs for the time when he will bring back to life your loved ones sleeping in death according to John 5:28,29. Meanwhile, may the God of all comfort be able to comfort your entire family.
