There really are no words...only prayers and love. We can still hear Dorie yelling “Hello!” over the balcony at the Essex when we first met way back in 1999 (?) Sometimes in life, you are blessed to meet a beautiful soul who will be with you from the moment that you first met, extending throughout your entire life with blessed memories and then proceeding to that beautiful eternity in heaven. We know that this is not a good-bye to Dorie...it is truly a brand new “Hello!” Just like the day we first met. Her love, her smile and her beautiful spirit will be with us forever!
