    Default Request a prayer for a friend...

    Doreen Dostie, age 47 passed away last night, a fellow workmate who has been battling cancer for the last 2 years. She was a project manager who had quite a bit of equipment pass through my warehouse. Competent, confident, and thorough, Doreen was one of the few that correctly and efficiently executed projects--and was a joy to work with (a rare quality around here). She was what I call a "guys gal" as she preferred to be around men, and understood them well and appreciated their candor. The guys liked having her around because she was a spit-fire and got things done.

    If you can, say a little prayer for Doreen, heck of a gal that will be missed. God bless you dear--the suffering is over. See you on the other side.

    Sad news, indeed. A few of my co-workers I consider akin to family. A prayer has been sent.

    Prayer sent

    Ironically, I just received an email from mlb.com for an fundraising event tonight called "Stand Up To Cancer". Airs tonight @ 8pm on three major networks. Folks, if you can, donate some money tonight. Cancer affects us all, whether directly or indirectly

    My condolences Steve! I go in a couple of weeks to get squished. I'm way over due by a couple of years.

    Thanks guys & gals, though Doreen and I weren't real close or anything, I did work with her on many projects and respected her work ethic. She was a real character, and I'm sure her funeral will be attended by many. Her cancer was very aggressive, so she actually made it far longer than many expected; I'm just thankful that her suffering is over.

    Correction to my first post, Doreen was 45.

    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.

    Thanks all. Doreen's daughter is an Opera singer-in-training, and did a beautiful song for her mother at the funeral--it was truly phenominal. The girl has incredible talent.

    Thanks again for the support.
