    You will be dearly missed in the FCC kitchen. As Jerry said, who will bake the rolls? You cracked me up with your humor and you were always there to help. Knowing you are completely healed and laughing in heaven helps ease the pain of being left behind. Until we meet again, I love you!

    Lorene was a very close friend in High School. Also my maid of honor at my wedding. So sorry to hear of her passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Lorene and Donnie.

    One of the things I miss most about my youth are the times I spent at the Selter’s. Don and Lorene accepted me as one of their own and I was always welcome. I spent many hours there, and nights and days. I pray for comfort for my friends Will, Meledy, Marsha, Jerry and Don. May God bless this family family.

    MRS SELTER WAS A WONDERFUL LADY. I REALLY ENJOYED TALKING TO HER. I REGRET THAT I CAN NOT BE AT THE FUNERAL. IF EVERYONE WAS LIKE HER THE WORLD WOULD BE A WONDERFUL PLACE. I KNOW SHE IS IN HEAVEN NOW AND SHE IS WATCHING HER TWO LITTLE DOGS. SHE WAS A VERY SPECIAL LADY.
