Dora and Charlie (her husband) and I have been friends since 1958. We have enjoyed each other's friendship all these years. We have been separated by miles apart, but always close to the phone and visits when we,could. We shared happy times,and sad times and gave each other support during the sad times. Dora was a Grand Lady and will be missed by all her friends and family. RIP DORA.
