    I will never forget the kindness of Mr. & Mrs. Doehring the night my brother Tom died, playing football. They came to our house and sat up all night with my parents, while my parents desperately tried to contact my older siblings and other relatives. They sometimes talked, or sometimes just sat there quietly just to BE there with my parents. I stayed up all night also, and sensed how very much it meant to my parents to have this incredible support during the most unimaginable time of their lives. RIP, Mrs. Doehring. I believe there are many, many others who were waiting for you to come stay with them, in everlasting peace.

    Tony, Karen and Patricia and families,
    Gene and I have so many special memories of your parents. I think in their case, opposites definitely attracted. The quiet Butch and the bubbly and outgoing Dorothy. Our deepest sympathy at the loss of your mom. So happy she will once again be reunited with her beloved Butch. ❤️🙏🏻
