I spent a week in Exeter hospital at the end of April..and Doreen was one of my roommates..what a kind and lovely lady…always smiling..when she wasn’t sleeping…and never heard her complain once. She enjoyed her family visiting. She told me lots of stories of Zurich….’back in the day’…and it was so interesting listening to her.
I’m so glad i got to meet her and enjoy her company!
Thinking of you all as you go thru this difficult time.
