Dear Shirley and Marion -

This is being sent on behalf of Jane and myself. We just learned of your Mother&s death this week-end when I received a copy of the obituary from Annie Westerham.

What a long life your beautiful Mom had - 97! Those years on Kelly Avenue sometimes seem like yesterday. Picking your Mom up in the mornings in our 1940 Chevrolet with the running boards, your Dad of course, Taffy, when your parents remodeled their living room using a professional interior decorator and Marion singing at my Dad&s funeral. I also remember seeing her in San Diego years ago when my Mom was still alive. Doris must have loved having all those grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Sorry this is late but we did want to send our condolences and tell you both we&re thinking of you. It was good to see you at that reunion some years ago, Shirley. We try to get to Cloquet once a year to see our 94 year old aunt who is still living in Esko. I&m going in October.

To the family of Doris Bishop,

Please except my heartfelt sympathy in the passing of your Mother/Grandmother. Mrs. Bishop was my fourth grade Math Teacher at Garfield School in Cloquet, Minnesota. I absolutely adored her. I have thought of her often over the years. I admired and respected her so much. I will always remember the gentle way she had with the children. I can still picture her standing in front of the class. She certainly wasn&t a pushover though. She was tough when she needed to be.

There are only a few people that leave a mark on your life. She was definitely one of those people for me. I am so very sorry for your loss.

Shirley, You remain in my thoughts and prayers. I sure do miss seeing your mom and her smiling face each time I come out of my office. She was a lovely lady and your devotion to her was so heartwarming. She will always be missed and I will cherish her memory in my heart always.

To Shirley Marciniak - if you are the daughter, who brought your mother to our weekly Vespers Services so faithfully every Sunday afternoon - my condolences and prayers for your strength and healing of your loss. We never exchanged names, but I feel like I know you from your regular appearance each week with your dear mother. May the deep love you showed for her return to you many times over from our beloved Lord Jesus. Blessings to you always - and all your family... Josie Mangus, Vespers Chair

I am sorry for your loss. I was a caregiver for Doris a very short time but we had many laughs and good visits. Being a fellow Canadian we were able to discuss some of the beauty Canada offered. Doris enjoyed going for walks on the grounds at Westminster and we often ended the trip with an ice cream cone.

Again, my condolences to the family. I know she will be missed.

Dear Shirley and Jim: Arliss and I send you our love and thoughts. We know Doris is happily sitting with God and her Albert. We love you and share your sadness at not having her here. (I bet Doris, June Sorge, and my mom are having a terrific reunion of the 97 year olds!)

Dear Shirley, Jim and Family,

Please accept our heartfelt sympathies on the loss of your Mom. We deeply regret being unable to be with you for the memorial service on Saturday, as we have a previous commitment in Chicago this weekend.

You have been an example of love and commitment, and shown us what family is about.

Blessings always,

Rosemarie & Hilary
