I am very sad to hear of Dori's passing. She was one of my best friends in high school and I will always remember our fun times. She was a very kind hearted and caring person and carried that on through her profession and those she touched. She will be missed by so many. I am praying for peace for you in your time of great loss.

Ms. Wasson

I really don't have the appropriate words.
It saddens my heart to hear this news. Dori was a young lady with a big smile and beautiful laughter. She touched many many lives in a positive way. I knew her to be compassionate and caring in her profession.
I'm fortunate to have known her and called her a friend.
My heart is heavy.

Godspeed my friend...
