    Fred,Peg, Larry & Sandy I am sorry about the loss of your mother (Aunt Dot). She was and always will be one of my favorite aunts of all time. She was smart, witty, and most important didn’t take any crap from anybody. She always had a smile on her face that I can remember. I will forever cherish the memories that I made with her, and will rest easy knowing she is in heaven where she belongs. Reunited with God and all the loved ones she missed oh so much!! I pray that peace be with you at this time of need. God Bless love and miss you all, especially you Aunt Dot!!!

    To The Bitner and Stockberger Familys,
    I am sorry to hear about your mother. I knew your mother and dad very well, and new most of the Stockberger Family also. We lived in the Stewart Manor when they did and I worked for the Little Gem across the street and got to see you Mom and Dad about every weekend. They were both good people and will be sadly missed. Tell your Uncle Larry that Brenda and I are very sorry and we will have you in our prayers. I just found out tonight about your mother as my system has been down and we no longer live in Frankfort. Again I am very sorry to hear about your mother.
    Our Prayers are with you.
