I am so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. It's comforting to know that God cares for all of us. The Bible gives us hope that one day we can see our loved ones again. On behalf of all mankind Jesus surrendered his soul. John 15:13 says “No one has love greater than this, that someone should surrender his soul on behalf of his friends.” Truly I am sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one and I hope these few words will bring you comfort and hope.

We are so sorry for your loss. We only just heard of Dory's passing today. We have known Dory for the past 25 years through her work at Dr. Kauffman's office and simply can't believe we won't see her smiling face again. Prayers for comfort for your family are being said.

We offer our sincere condolences to the Abad family. We knew Dory through her work at Dr. Kaufmann's office. She always had a smile on her face. This bible verse reminds me of Dory.
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." 2 Timothy 4:7

I remember the first time I met Stephanie's mom. We went over to her house and she was telling us embarrassing stories about Stephanie and we could see Stephanie's face getting red. Her personality and sense of humor was contagious and I could tell she was a woman that everyone loved to be around. She was a great mother who has raised a beautiful, caring, loyal, and very close friend of mine and knowing Stephanie's attributes I know that Dory was an amazing woman. God Bless Dory in Heaven and God bless Stephanie, Sheena, and her husband remaining on earth and know that an amazing woman will watch over them for the rest of their lives.
Love with all my heart,

Stephanie & Family-
My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. I can only hope you can find peace in your mother's passing. Although I only met her a couple times, she had a very bright spirit. From the description of her, you actually sound very much like her, so she will live on through you. I know she will be truly missed, and I wish I could be there for the services. I will be thinking and praying for you during that time. I love you and take care.

Auntie Dory words cannot describe how saddened I am. I know you have endured and fought to the end. Just want you to know I looked to you as if you were my own mom and truly appreciate how you've touched me and my families life. You loved us unconditionally and for that I'm forever greatful.

You will be missed, loved, and never forgotten. Hope you are looking down and reassured we will take care of my dad and Sheena. Love you!

To The Abad Family;
I just meet Dory on July 19, 2010 at the Southside Cancer Center. The short length of time, we talked I could tell that she was a beautiful person. You have my deepest sympathy, and may God give you a peace that surpasses all understanding and guard your heart and mind through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Stephanie and Family,
I know you guys know this first hand, but Dory was such a wonderful lady, and heaven is truly richer for having her there. I remember her as being just as funny as she could be. I have so many memories of hanging out with the Spears, with so many shared laughs.
Please know that your Mom will not be forgotten and continues to live on through the legacy of Stephanie, Sheena, and so many others.
Peace and Love to you all during this difficult time.

My sincerest condolences to Dory's family during this time of grief. Dory was an excellent mother to both of her children and a great wife to her husband. She will always be remembered for her smile, great sense of humor, her laugh, and caring nature to everyone she met. She was one of most beautiful people inside and out I ever knew. She will be sorely missed, but heaven has better plans for her now. Lets hope we are all as lucky to follow her there someday.
