Dear Karen, Gayle, Laurie and Family,
Our thoughts and prayers have been with you in your sorrow with the loss of your mother and recent loss this year also of your father. We enjoyed working with your mother in Dietary, and also Karen and Gayle. Doris had a likeable, friendly way about her with the difficult job of upholding the rules and regulations of the department. May the memories of your mom and dad be a comfort you now.
With sympathy,
Lynn and Linda Gage
