My Friend Doris......


This has been a very hard day. Last night as I was coming home from Desi and Tim's home, I talked to my friend Doris. She and her husband Jud had gone down to Las Vegas for the long weekend. They were having fun and she wanted to stay one more day so that she could visit with a good friend of hers. I told her not to worry about work and have a good time. Who would have known that it would be the last time that I would talk to her.
I started work at Cyprus in the spring of 2008. We have worked side by side ever since. People either really liked her or they didn't. Those that didn't-did not really know her. She is an amazing lady that had a special talent of making those around her feel like she really cared about them.
Cyprus will never be the same without her. She will be missed by so many. I am just thankful that our paths crossed in this life and hope that she knows just how much I love her and appreciate all that she taught me and did for me. May she rest in peace-safely embraced by our Father in Heaven.
So for those of you that live in Magna-as you look out your windows tonight and see the "C" all lit up on the mountain, those lights are for her. We will always remember her.

Sonja, I don't know if you were trying to say "safely embraced" or if the "embarrassed" was an inside joke, but I have a feeling your friend would get the joke either way. I'm sad for you today, and am sending a warm hug your way!:)

It is so hard to lose friends. I love you. Hang in there. Everything happens at the time it happens for a reason.

Oh yea, embraced is a better word. I couldn't even see last night. I just hit spell check. LOL!
