  1. I just returned from El Faro in Ensenada after a great 4 day weekend, While there I saw Dorie\’s place and thought she would sure have enjoyed all the sun we were getting. I will always remember our great times just sitting around the bonfires and catching up on all that happened since our last meeting. I so enjoyed meeting you two girls and keeping up with the growing families Dorie was so proud of. Just a few days ago we talked on phone and caught up on our activites. I loved your Mother as a respected friend. I\’m happy to have known her. This morning I spoke to friends in El Faro and they asked I pass along their sympathy to your family.

  2. We are all so sorry for you loss. Your mother was such a wonderful person and it was a pleasure to get to know her when she would come to visit you. Our thoughts and prayers our with all of you at this time. Love and prayers, The Satterly family

  3. Dalene, I was so sorry to hear that your Mom passed away. I pray that you\’ll recieve God\’s comfort. My heart is with you. Give the girls a hug for me. Love, Lisa Austill
