    I was so saddened to hear of Doris passing. I also can’t help but smile thinking of her! Dorris was so good to her friends and just a fun person to be around. She was such an amazing friend to my grandparents, George and Faye Hosti and an especially good friend to my grandma. She was so incredibly good to my Pop Pop, Ernest Hosti. I know that he and Dot are joyful seeing their fishing buddy, Hoppe, welcome her home after all these years. I imagine they are all having a really beautiful reunion. Truly deep connections never go away, they just change, but it doesn’t make the change any easier. Love and comfort to you all during this difficult time.
