    Thinking about you all, and the loss of Doris. She seemed to live her life well and I always found her upbeat, when I’d see her. She always dressed to nines. I know you will all miss her dearly, and I am sure were a great comfort to her these past few months, especially.
    Take good care
    Lori Smehoff
