I was so sorry to hear about Miss Doris. She has always been one of the most sweetest people I know. I know Heaven is brighter with her there. May God give you all, strength and comfort in the following days.

Doris was a dear friend of our family! She was such a loving, kind, generous, thoughtful, Christian, Lady. She brought joy and laughter to any event or occasion. She loved children and young people. She provided a job of cutting grass for our boys when they were "growing up". They enjoyed the nice refreshments she gave them when they finished mowing the grass! They enjoyed the fun times and being in her company. We did, also. She welcomed people to our Church and encouraged them to come to the programs. She could not "move slow" and "almost ran" to complete any chore or to help someone! We shall miss her!
