    To her family and friends how much I enjoyed working with and having her as a good friend. We had so much fun laughing at work and she could always cheer me up. She was such a great baker and cook we all enjoyed what tasty things she would bring to work. She will be missed by her family and also by her many friends. I will never forget Dora.
