My sincere deepest sympathy for the entire family!
Our sincere sympathy to all of Dora's family. I so enjoyed her when she was at the Embers. She and my mom shared a birth date, Dec. 3, although my mom was a year older, they talked to each other on their birthday. She was an extra special person, and will be missed.

I had the privilege of meet this awesome lady in 2007. She made me feel like a friend from the moment I met her. She was an amazing, loving woman and I am honored to have known her. Our most sincere condolences to her family.
