    My most sincere sympathies to the entire family of Dear Doreen Bossio. She was a very lovely lady – always with the sweetest smile, the most gentle spirit, the kindest words and the warmest heart (much like my own mother).

    I was fortunate to meet Doreen when I worked reception at Dewey, Cuttem & Howe Hair Salon and I looked forward to her ‘regular’ appointments… allowing us time for great chats and wonderful moments shared. She’ll be forever remembered as ‘special’ in my heart.

    Keep your fondest memories close for comfort through this difficult time and best blessings for you all.
