I grew up with Dorinda as a family friend...close In elementary school so she is part of learning what a friend is...time moves us around but I happened to re-find her as a friend to Heather thoughts and see the pictures she posted...she is a blessing to our earth and it's less without her... genuine and vulnerable, strong and clear of mind and sensitive to love family and to show thankfulness and faith even in be proud of her daughter and parents and share the wonder and experience of presence with her dog with smart eyes...I am truly thankful to have known and shared a small bit of life with my friend. Lord watch between me and thee.

Dorinda, you and I only worked together for a short time but shared many stories in our shared office. I will always think of you when I see my purses from the party you took me to, when I see a runner and when I find the time to do some scrapbooking again. I know life has thrown you some curveballs. Rest In Peace, Dorinda. My heart is breaking for your parents, MacKenzie, your sister and her family. May the wonderful memories of you comfort your family during this difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers go out to your family during this time. I am saddened to hear of Dorinda’s unexpected passing. Dorinda and I were best friends when we were in high school. I have so many fond memories of the times we spent together. We had so many get togethers, played volleyball, sleepovers, etc. She was always up for an adventure! Dorinda was always smiling and loved sunsets! She was a trustworthy and loyal friend! I am so thankful for the time that we shared together and how she touched my life during her time here on earth. I know I will see her again! May God’s peace and comfort be with your family during this time. Godspeed!
