    I am so sorry to read of the passing of Doreen. I had the pleasure of knowing her at Chimes throughout the past few years. Doreen was a kind woman who always had a smile and a kind word for those she cared for and met throughout the day. She fought a brave fight and I pray that she is now at peace! Please accept my condolences to her family and friends.

    I am sorry for your loss. I remember when Maria worked at the station for a while, I would stop in at the end of her shift and talk to Doreen. She was always pleasant and had something positive to say whenever I talked to her.
    Your family is in my prayers.
