Larry and family. I want to send my condolences to you and your family. I have known Rin for so many years growning up together in Hazelton. We had so much fun, I can still hear her laugh. I had been thinking of her lately and was so saddened to hear of her passing. I know what a wonderful person she was and will miss her so.

Our sympathy to James and Justin and family. It has been many years since first meeting at NDSU. She had so much love and joy for her "little" boys. May you have comfort in knowing she is resting in her heavenly home.

I was deeply saddened to hear about the recent passing of Dorinda. Twenty years ago, I carpooled with Dorinda from Verona to Valley City everyday to attend college at VCSU. She was someone I looked up to and admired for her determination in earning a degree while raising a young family. She loved being a mom and talked highly of her boys. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family, and may your fond memories of Rin continue to give you strength and comfort.

Dorinda was a lovely lady who I enjoyed very much as a patient. She was more than just a patient to me and I enjoyed her friendship very much. She always took time to ask how my life was going. I appreciated her wise input.
The world was a better place because of her and she will truely be missed by all at Davita.
God Bless her family and know you are in many thoughts and prayers.
I will donate to the Lupus foundation in her name.

My sincere condolences to the family during this very sad time for you and so many others.

I have many fond memories of Rin from elementary and high school. We were the "town kids" and thought we were really cool. Rin actually was really cool. My sisters and I always had fun at the Keller house when we'd visit and Martin was always so nice to us when we went to the elevator where he worked. I always appreciated her direct approach and honesty, although it wasn't always what I wanted to hear. And she had a

Back in the day, Rin and Wanda both babysat us Landsberger kids. Our dads were good friends, and I remember Rin in hip-huggers, young and beautiful. Heartfelt sympathy to the Keller sisters and the rest of Rin's family.
