Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry to hear of your loss.

Oren was a true "Southern Gentleman", a mentor and a trusted advisor! Our thoughts and prayers are with your family!

The last time I saw Oren, at Lutheran Home's 50th Anniversary, he had the trademark smile. A great man who will be missed by all.

TO the Family of Oren CLine,

Your Dad was such a gentleman, so friendly even to those he did not know. When visiting at the Lutheran Home, he always had that smile on his face and greeted me although he did not know me personally.

What a legacy he left for all of you!

May God give you the comfort you need as you adjust your lives to this loss.

Oren and my father had a life long friendship, and our families were close friends for many years. It was always wonderful seeing Oren at the Lutheran Home and again with Joyce at my father's 90th birthday dinner. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Cline family. I know that Joyce, Dale, and Jeff will always cherish their special memories of their father, a kind and gentle man.
