Dear Bob, Barbara, Lisa, Ed and Richard:
I was deeply saddened to see the loss of Dorothy. I always remember a smile on her face as well as her kindness.
It took me back to the years of wonderful memories on North Fourth Street in Fulton when your family would visit your parents and grandparents home and Greg, Gail and I would have the opportunity to visit and play with your children. Our parent's, Russell and Gladys, and our family have a special place in our hearts for the Pannell's.
You have our deepest condolences.
Tom, Jill (Naftzger) and Megan Doherty

Our sympathy to the family of Dorothy, we shared many wonderful times in the past with Dorothy, especially the laughter and fun at Grandma Kustes' house in our younger days, such lovely people.
Dorothy had a heart of gold and cared for friends and family deeply.
God Bless her and be with her children and our Uncle.

Barb, Brent, Heather and family-
On the few occasions I met your Mom/Grandmother she was always so warm and charming. At Brent's going away party we sat together and had a nice talk and she spoke then about her cancer and we spoke about my mother's as well. Then we enjoyed some pizza and few laughs.
It's a tough battle to watch someone go through but like my mom , your mother was a strong woman, she loved deep and

I have the fondest memories of spending many family picnics and Dottie bringing out the homemade pickles and those mints. I even got some mints sometimes all too myself as a perk for being her godson. I got achance to speak to her two weeks ago and mentioned that as I was now old enough, her godmotherly duties were done. She was quick to remind me that she was NEVER done with that and I shouldn't forget it.
I will miss her. May she rest in peace.
