Doreen was a bright and shining light in my life. I will remember Doreen for her good natured and generous loving spirit. She was always the first to dive in and lend a hand when she saw that something needed to be done. She was a dear and cherished friend who Grace and I will dearly miss as a true blue friend. I love you Doreen and will remember you with great fondness.
