Thank you to everyone who has reached out to share their love of my Dad, James (Jim) Dorris and their support.
For those of you who didn't have the benefit of seeing him recently, I thought I'd share a picture from our last family shoot in August 2019. My Mom was blessed with 57 amazing years and we were blessed to have my Dad living here with us in TN.
When Covid passes, we will lay his ashes to final rest in Miami, Fl where my brother is buried, and where my Dad spent most of his adult life. As you can tell by his amazing tan, he loved the sun and I will think of him every time it shines...
I miss you already Dad...

So sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. We were classmates in high school and I was recently thinking about him because another classmate and I were wondering where & how he was. One never forgets a friend who was so much a part of those years. Condolences to his family whom I knew when my last name was Parker.

So sad to hear this news. We were classmates and sports team mates at Centralia High School , Illinois. Jim was a wonderful basketball player for the Centralia Orphans and carried the load in his senior year. I will forever remember Jim as a friend and a team mate. He was the best example of a Centralia Orphan I have. Rest In Peace dear friend. You set the example of excellence.
