    Doris Dimenstein was my most favorite Dimenstein ever. When she married my Uncle Sam so many years ago I fell madly in love with her. She will be missed by so many. Love you Doris.

    I’m so sorry for all of our loss. Till near the end she was always in the lobby welcoming people in the Towers. I can hear her shouting for me. She will be missed but I’m sure she will be organizing people in heaven.

    I have not lived at the Towers for long but Doris touched my heart in many ways. Words can’t express how deeply I feel about her passing. I will miss her smiling face in the lobby of the Towers. May she rest in peace.
