Dear Francis and Sussner Family I just learned of the death of Dolores and was sad to hear the news. I have many wonderful memories of Dolores and of visiting with her in Minneota. She was always helpful and kind to me whenever I was searching for family history on the Schroedl side. I also fondly recall beautiful visits to New Ulm and Fairfax when my mother Martha was present. Dolores was a kind and gentle woman who loved her family most deeply. I offer my sympathy to dear Francis and assure him of my constant prayerful support and affection.

My deepest sympathy to Delore's family and friends. May God hold you in his arms to comfort you at this time of loss, AFTER GLOW Id like the memory of me to be a happy one. Id like to leave an after glow of smiles when life is done, Id like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, Of happy times and laughing times and bright and summer days. Id like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun, Of happy memories that I leave When life is done. Rest in peace Delores Teri (Fry) Haburn
