    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Dorris. I worked at aspen grove where she spent a little time. She was a joy to have around and I was always smiling when I got to spend time with her. She was always so friendly and just loved to talk. I loved hearing about he family vacations to the Smokey mountains. She will surely be missed by many.
