    Doralynn and family: My condolences to all her friends and family. I met you for the first time at my 50th B-day and your outgoing personality made my party special as if I had known you all my life. My guests also enjoyed your company that evening. You were always smiling and that is how I want to remember you. You are probably looking down on all of us without doubt smiling I am sure. We miss you already!

    To Doralynn’s Family:

    I am so sorry to hear about Doralynn. I met Doralynn when my husband passed away six months ago and she came to my house to do some paperwork. As soon as I met her, I knew God had sent an angel in disguise. We had similar stories to share and I felt as if I had known her for years. Doralynn called me from the hospital and due to my own grieving and health issues related to the loss of my husband, I was unable to visit her. I called her at home and she was in so much pain that I could not even talk to her. I have been thinking about her so much lately and I have left her messages on her cell phone and just found out today that both her phones are not in service. I called the Funeral Home to check if she is still working and found out the sad news. She will always hold a special place in my heart and I know that she will be very dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with all her loved ones. Bineeta Ram
