Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I am proud to say that I was a friend of both Dr. Ray and Dorcas since the early 2000s. They always carried themselves with poise and the loved they shared was very obvious. I truly will miss them both but I am grateful for the time we shared. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. - Posted by: Jason Stalker (Friend) on: Jan 09, 2023

  • Dorcas, when we meet again I will be waiting for your report on what you learned from this last journey! We were friends for over 40 years. I enjoyed our special lunches where we would always hear of the newest personal development or health strategy and what her recent recommendations were for reading. She was always on the cutting edge of new theories. We were special friends who not only shared office space for many years but also shared our intimate personal thoughts, and issues. She was my role model. I will miss you Dorcas… Your special tenderness, your gentle nature, your concern for others, but always seeking the next adventure. Good friends like you are hard to find. You are a keeper for life, even if only in memory. Patricia - Posted by: Patricia benson (Friend) on: Jan 08, 2023

  • Dorcas and I met when I joined Spirit's Call choir, now known as Margaret's Choir. I was delighted by her sweet nature and felt she was a friend. Please accept my condolences to the whole family, and especially Jan, whom I also met at the choir. We have lost one of the good people of the world. - Posted by: Louise Gillman (Friend) on: Jan 07, 2023
