My sincere condolences to the loved-ones of Dorleen Andrus. I have transported Dorleen to various medical appointments for the last few years, and feel blessed to have developed a friendship with her. Dorleen, despite being faced with multiple health issues, always was positive and hopeful. She accepted her medical problems and often expressed to me her faith that God had a plan for her life and has only given her what she could endure. Dorleen's courage and optimistic outlook have been humbling to me and I have been blessed to know her. I'll think of you and pray for you often Dorleen.
