We were so blessed to have met Doris at Weatherwood Manor. My Mom was across the hall and Doris was a Godsend and a friend to her. She was great company and they had a lot in common. My Mom painted and Doris would draw and color. After my Mom passed, we visited Doris often and so enjoyed spending time with her. When covid hit, we weren’t able to visit. I feel so bad not being able to spend that time visiting or to say goodbye. I know my Mom is going to be waiting for her on the other side with open arms. We will miss you friend.
