I meet Doris in Grand Jct Co June 1982. My sister Mary and her son Jeff were in ICU at St Marys Hospital at the same time. My mother Dorothy and Doris shared a mothers worst nightmare. They comforted each other. Doris was so kind and I have never forgot about her and Jeff. My mother just went to heaven also Nov 2019. Going thru her papers I found a letter Doris wrote to my mother in 1982 telling us Jeff went to be with the lord, and how meeting wonderful people in Colorado gave them comfort. I am so sorry for your loss, Doris was a wonderful lady and I will never forget her. Penny Zotto Clifton, CO
