    Our hearts are so saddened and hurt for all of you. I can hear her laughter as I look at her picture through tears. What a blessing she was to so many, especially her best friend of over 60 years, Sammy.
    May God give you peace at this time.

    Harry and Janet.
    Doris wasn’t only a patient to me, she was very special to me. I always looked forward to seeing her come to the office and getting a hug and a peck on the cheek. She liked to tell people that I was her adopted granddaughter and that always made my heart smile. I loved her like my own grandmother and I wish I could have seen her one last time. You have my deepest sympathy and I am going to miss her so much.

    I was very saddened to hear and im so sorry for your loss. I am keeping you and the entire family in my prayers. Dori was quite the lady and her kind and gentle heart outshined everytime I saw her. Her smile and laughter filled a room. Heaven for sure is even better and brighter with her there.
