Doris was one of those people that truly enlightened the room when she entered, a true angel on earth, this world has lost a beautiful soul.
Doris was a wonderfully kind and beautiful lady! She sure could light up a room with her smile. Even though she wasn’t family, she treated me like I was. I have one of her beautiful paintings to treasure forever. Heaven gained another beautiful angel!
We loved this special lady. She always made us feel loved.
I had the pleasure of taking care of Doris at Columbia this past month. She was the sweetest lady, and will truly be missed. She was kind to everyone and always had a smile on her face..even when I knew she didn’t feel very well. She loved to talk about the Lord and her family, and would be soo excited to talk to them on the phone or Facetime. We had a birthday party for her April 1st..nothing big..cake, flowers, and a card signed by the staff and other residents.. You woulda thought we gave her the world! She was so happy and gracious..it was a special day for us all on the Cottage.. I want to thank her family for trusting us with her care. I’ll keep you all in my prayers. RIH, Ms. Doris..💜
