    I have fond memories of joining Annette to see the sandhill cranes near Kearney with Dorothy and Dan. Always enjoyed my time visiting with Dorothy. She was much loved by many and is already missed.

    Dorothy always welcomed me to your family get togethers. Going to see Ellen’, Carolyn, and Henry’s dance recital and ice cream after is an example of how the Stenners, including Dorothy, always made me feel like party of your extended family. My heart goes out to you all.

    I just heard about the passing of your mom. It brings back memories of Girl Scout Camp, her gentle laugh and the many times she saved me from one of my bike accidents. My condolences to you all.
