Condolence & Memory Journal

Sorry to hear the passing of a beautiful person

Aunt Doreen, you were always a very bright light in the family. Your sweetness and caring was always without compare. We remember the many times our families got together at the house in Hesperia with Aunt Rosaleen and Aunt Retta and every family member that could manage to be there. The house always rang with laughter a love whenever you were there. You were our favorite auntie and we love you so much. Some day we will all be together again and Heaven will reflect the gladness of that reunion. Until we meet again, Aunt Doreen you will live in our hearts with nothing but fond memories.
