    Y’all I’m so sorry about Dot. I’m just heartbroken for everyone. She was so well-loved and just a down-to-earth good person. I love all of you and am here for whatever y’all need. I’m going to really miss seeing Dot, but I praise God that she’s in a healthy body now. I hope and pray y’all find comfort and peace over time, but I know this is something that you’ll really have a hard time recovering from. I’m so sorry.

    I had the pleasure of working with Doris Jacobs during my career at Murdoch Center. Her friendship and work ethics were rewarding to anyone who came into contact with her. She certainly made our facility a better place for the staff and clients at the Center. My sympathy to her husband, Carl Jacobs. It is with sorrow to hear of for loss. Thoughts and prayers to her family.
