    I got to know Dora while working at Centennial Elementary in Fargo. She was a wonderful, kind, gentle and a very hard worker. My Sympathy to all of her family. God be with you in your time of sorrow.
    No more suffering for her. RIP Dora.

    Dora made the best tamales every Christmas for our family! I so much will miss our times sitting on the patio drinking tea and coffee. I will miss the stories. I will miss the cooking lessons. Most of all, I am missing my Friend. I am so happy I had Dora as my neighbor and my friend. Sleep in your sweet angels arms, where you have no more pain. I love you Dora!

    We were friends for several years working at Eventide. Then we would run into each out shopping and always have a quick hi how are you. I again saw Dora not more that a few weeks ago and she looked like she was feeling better after all her trials. Again we connected after so many years, still the kind, sweet always concerned friend. This lady had a lot of class…. RIP. my friend.

    The hurt and pain that comes when losing a loved one may sometimes feel so unbearable that we might think that we can’t go on. Our Heavenly Father will give you all the strength to cope with the loss of your dear loved one. For further encouragement please visit http://www.jw.org.

    Hello, my name is Carlein. I am a Bible teacher. I am sorry for your loss. A scripture that has given me much comfort is Revelation 21.4 which promises that one day death shall be no more. I hope this truth brings you comfort also.

  8. John Rux says:

    To the Garza family:
    I’m a Minister and after reading Dora’s obits wanted to extend my condolence to you and your friends.. When I experience death and my family or hear of others, I’m reminded of what the bible promises at Revelation chap 21 verse 4-5. There we have God’s promise that one day all sickness, death and pain will be eliminated. That will happen when God’s Kingdom rules this earth as it does heaven. Then you will see Dora again. So until then Pray for God’s Kingdom to Come.
