    Our prayers go out to the Kautzman family, we would like to express our condolences at this time to your family. The Bible is a great source of encouragement at times like this, a comforting thought is at Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”

    Surprise ArizonaWe send our deepest sympathy to Willie and family. I got to know Delores at dances at St. Anthony and Flasher. At that same time I got to know you, Willie.
    Many years later we were able to get to know Delores better at family functions including weddings. She joined us on stage to play a song on her accordian at Raenette and Marv’s wedding. That was very special.
    My wife Sheri and I would see Delores many times in Detroit Lakes and have nice visits. God bless wonderful Delores, you Willie, and the great family she had.

    Caledonia WIDolores is my beloved older sister. She was like a second mother to me, given our 15-year age difference.

    When I last spoke with her via written letter in early December, I told her that I was praying every night for an easy passing, that it would not be very painful, and that she would be able to slip away peacefully, as she deserved to have that in the end.

    I asked her that when she got to heaven to say “hello” to all our relatives. She was very excited to know she would be with her daughter Linda.

    I told her I cherished our times together and that I would miss her very, very much. I could talk to her about anything and we certainly had a lot of fun times together.

    Willie & Family: May you stand strong and let the Lord be your strength, faith and peace.

    Dolores: I will ALWAYS love and miss you more than you can realize.

    Love your little sister,
