Dory, was the nickname for doreen. She was a enthusiastic and funny girl. Knowing her was not like knowing anyone else, I consider it a privelge to know her. I both love her and miss her. Words can't describe the pain everyone trying to get through, as the tearful days pass small things like a girl with 'lots of freckles passing by or just macoroni and cheese remind us of Dory. Im shocked that such a disaster came upon us.
DORY I LOVE YOU

were charges ever filed against the female driver? and was alcohol a factor/was this a DUI thing? I heard the driver, a female, was airlifted to a nearby hospital, did she survive?
