In her last years as Doris battled dementia, she received at-home assistance from the Visiting Angels caregiving service and Hospice Home Care. Her family thanks the staffs of these wonderful organizations, including Dani Edwards, Tyler Whittaker, Megan Bailey, Marilyn Hannah, Barbara Jones, Tammy Hardin, Rachel, Destiny, and Pastor Jimmy Holland. Their loving, compassionate care, especially during the difficult times of the COVID pandemic quarantine, permitted Doris to enjoy life as fully as possible. We are eternally grateful and salute them for the first responder heroes that they are.
