Condolences for the family of “LESSARD, DOROTHY”

Condolence from Fred and Vicki De Werth on March 25th, 2015 9:26 pm

Dorothy was a loving person totally devoted to her husband, family and God. The bond between Dorothy and Fr. Mike was true to their wedding vows; their devotion and love for each other was always in plain view – an encouraging example for all married couples. Her life was full of ups and downs as it is with all of us. However, she was a warrior dealing with increasing health issues and constant change. And you never had to guess her true feelings when speaking with her. She will be dearly missed.

Condolence from William T Price on March 25th, 2015 9:30 pm

I wish to offer my heartfelt condolences to the entire Lessard family, Dorothy was and is the most Godly and loving woman I have ever met. I will miss her as I know everyone who had contact with her will.

Condolence from Walt & Roslyn Atwood on March 25th, 2015 9:56 pm

Dear Mike and family,
Our deepest and heartfelt sympathy for your loss, but rejoice in the celebration of her life and graduation to be with her Lord.

Condolence from Rev. Roger Jan Radley on March 26th, 2015 10:27 am

Dorothy never missed a moment of “preaching” about the love of Jesus and the powerful Baptism of the Holy Spirit.–by deed and word.
Many of us privileged to serve as priests owe the deepening of our faith due to her fidelity to the Lord and to her beloved Michael.
She mentored me in the freedom from the past and its’ shame to go beyond all appearances and seek the “peace that surpasses all understanding.”
God has blessed us with Dorothy “on earth as it is in heaven”

Condolence from Tim, Karen, Savannah, and Ryan on March 26th, 2015 11:08 am

Dear Fr. Mike and family,
Our deepest sympathy for your loss and our humble prayers during this difficult time. Dorothy is now home to the rightful place God has prepared for her. Surely, we will miss her physically, but she is the place where we all want to be — a place where pains and sufferings are no more.
