She is slowly getting rid of everything she no longer needs by advertising on the internet and offering most of the items for free. Dorie waits for people to contact her. She doesn't go out much and works only a few nights a week. Dorie goes to a support group along with her friend Jean, who lost her daughter and grandson to a brutal murder. Dorie has devised a way to help herself and Jean cope with the pain, the loneliness and the anger.
