    Dearest Dorie, how do I describe you? You were an outstanding woman. Kind, dear, compassionate, caring, and so much more! You loved the Lord! We shared that love, and somewhere along the way, we became friends. I so enjoyed our visits, the conversations, your smiles, your concerns. I regret that I let everyday life issues get in the way of my visiting you these past months. At our last visit I told you I love you and you said the same to me. You will always remain in my heart! Rest in peace, dear friend, you will be missed!
