Thanks for the kind words Joe. We agree she got everything out of life she ever wanted and just wanted to be with and care for our father again.

Thank you Barbara. She spoke of you often and fondly and considered you a dear friend. The next time you pass and wave please give me a couple of toots on your horn so I'll know it's you.

Thanks Ruth Ann. As you may already know, my mother was longing to go and be with my father again. I look forward to the day I can see them both again.

Thanks Angie. My family and I are eternally grateful for the care you and all of the Oakview staff provided for my mother. There just aren't enough good things to say. You may know already that Doris picked Oakview herself. Just another example of momma knows best.

Thank you Tom for the kind words and all of the help and comfort you've been to both of my parents over you years. Your assistance with computer problems eased their frustration on numerous occasions.

Thank you so very much for the tireless and compassionate care you and others at Oakview always gave my mother. The family and I are especially thankful for the numerous updates on her condition once the facility was on lockdown. Although I know you were frequently exhausted from working extended shifts, your professionalism, patience, and compassion always came through the phone on every occurrence,

Thanks Dawn for the kind thoughts. I know, given her condition, my mother wasn't always the nicest or most docile resident of Oakview, She did love you and the other staff and was grateful how you all made Oakview a home for her. My family and I are eternally grateful for the excellent care Doris received from you and the rest of the staff .

Thank you Jackie for taking the time to post your condolences. I know how busy you all are at Oakview during this quarantine period. My family and I are very grateful for the loving and professional care Doris received from you and the other staff at Oakview. Everyone was willing to go that extra step to extend your relationship with her far beyond just a care provider.

Thank you for the kind words and memories. It is soothing to my family and I to be reminded of how my mother touched so many peoples hearts. She's with my father now which is where she longed to bee for many years now.
