To Mr. Bill, Hubba, Walt, Bob, Jim, and of course, Beth, one of my best friends in the world (plus Jim M., Cindy, Suzette, and Julie& all the grandkids)..... My whole heart is with you all, and I share in your loss. You were all like a second family to me for so many years. Doris was an amazing woman, wife mother, grandma..... something that I am so glad that I got to see close up. You are all part of her beautiful legacy. May God bless you all and comfort you.

Doris was a sweet, caring lady to a young Pastors wife who she hired to clean her home. I remember her insisting that I sit down and take a lunch break with her. She was so generous to me. She will be greatly missed.

Diane Carney May 31 2018 12:00 AM
