Memories Timeline


  1. My family and I worked with Doris at Candlelight and Roses. Doris was such a delight to be around. I have so many found memories of her at the restaurant. She worked as the hostess and people loved coming in to talk to her. Doris made a lot of people smile. She made me smile a lot too. Those were some good times!

  2. Doris\’ spirit will be missed by many. She was such a pleasure to work with- always smiling, always laughing, always brightening the day. Rest In Peace
