I have lost a very dear
and cherished friend!
We have had a lot of laughs, and we have cried together at times. God now has a New Angel in
Heaven to watch over us.
With our deepest sympathy. Dot was a very kind and loving woman.

I remember Doris as "Dordie" visiting her with my mom many times
when she lived by Cave Hill. Dordie was a sweet woman, always smiling, and a good niece and friend to my mom. I know she
and mom will be happy to see each other in Heaven. Rest in peace and prayers to the family.
