Dorothy Sue and family,

I am so very, very sorry for your loss. Doris was a beautiful lady, inside and out. I loved her and I was so very glad we got to see and talk with her over the Labor Day weekend. My heart goes out to you all. However, here is a word of comfort that has comforted me since the loss of Leo. "Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, but love leaves a memory no one can steal."

Love to each of you and May God comfort you.

Linda East
