    Dora and Family
    Keith was a great friend to me and always willing to help. I especially appreciated his efforts towards my receiving the Blue Ribbon Award from my peers at Stampede Park. His untiring efforts are greatly appreciated. He was a wonderful friend to many and I feel blessed to have been included as one.
    May you find peace in knowing that he is with his God and doing what he can to help someone.

    Sincerely
    Harold Butler

    Through our busy lives we take different paths which leads us to losing touch with many dear friends. One thing we all have in common is the profound sorrow when we lose a love one. Our hearts go out to Darlene, Dora and the whole family in this time of need.

  9. Sorry to hear about the passing of your husband Dora. I used to work with you at the old Depot 3 back in the 80’s. I’m still at the PO as a LC at the super depot just off Barlow Tr. I plan on retiring at the end of the year after 36.5 years. There’s still a few old timers around like Robbie Lavalle and Denise Rivers.—–Wayne Johns
