you will join her in heaven.

So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She lived a good long life. We use to correspond years ago after I married and moved to Iowa. Our families spent lots of time together in younger years when we cousins were growing up. Take heart – God has planned this for a purpose. Let your lights shine.
Love, Robert and Joan

Dearest Martha and Family. Your Mother was loved by many, and a blessing on earth. She has touched hundreds of hearts on her way. Her journey was complete and heard the call from God “COME HOME” God Bless You All and as he will give you the Peace knowing that she is safe in his arms until one day you will see her again.
Gene and Nancy Higgins
What a wonderfully kind, gracious, pleasant, and godly person Mrs. Lipke was and is! Since she is now in the presence of her Redeemer and Lord, more alive than she ever was before, the present tense – “is,” not “was” – is more precise. We hope that amid your great sense of loss you will find comfort in thinking that the glorious reunion cannot be far off.
Sincerely in our Lord Jesus,
Gene and Nancy
I have lived next door to this very special lady for many years. She was a very special person and a dear friend. To describe ” Perfect Neighbor” it would be Dorothy. I will miss her.

It was such a privilege to spend time with your mother and your family some 25+ years ago. She was a wonderful woman and raised an incredible family that is a great tribute to her. May you appreciate the legacy she left you and may your memories of her keep her very close to each of you.
