I first met Doreen five years ago when my Mother became a resident at Seven Oaks. I remember seeing this lovely, graceful woman who was warm and friendly. She and I developed a relationship which became warmer and stronger as the years passed. She always made me feel so good about myself. She made me feel truly as though each time she was happy to see me. And not just because of the chocolates I would bring for her! It became a tradition. I grew to love her. I feel a great sense of loss at her passing, but I am happy she is finally where she wants to be. I miss her terribly!
