  • To Dorie’s family:

    Your mom was a friend to me and we enjoyed many a summer day getting together with the neighbors on Cloverdale Ave. We use to have such a good time, sharing stories, and laughing. I will always remember her that way. She always talked about her sons and was quite proud of you both and her grandchildren. She doesn’t have to suffer anymore and I pray she is in the arms of an angel.

    With my deepest sympathy,
