Memories Timeline


  1. I’m sorry to learn of the passing of your Mother Curt. I know you and Jan will find strength and comfort in the Lord. Psalm 23 comes to mind when it says “…. though I walk through the Valley of the shadow of death …” it says we walk through the darkness but we don’t get stuck in that darkness. The Lord will walk with you both.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I was so saddened to hear the news of Dorothy’s passing. She was the sweetest, kindest person and I always enjoyed seeing her and visiting with her. I am also a resident at Touchmark and I will miss her tremendously. Thank you for sharing her with all of us. Heidi Erdahl
