    Doris was such a wonderful person and a good mother to my childhood friend Sheena. I have known Doris, her late husband, and Sheena ever since I was able to walk. So many great memories of everybody. Our mother’s. were also good friends and run around together. She will be missed, but heaven received another good one. Until we meet again, I shall see you on the other side, in which is a better place in which to be.

    So sorry for your loss Shenna and family.

    Sheena and family:

    Our sincere sympathy to you and your family. Doris was a really nice neighbor to have. I can remember the many times that she and I would talk on her front porch. She and my Dad would also visit on his front porch after my Mom died. That helped him a lot to have someone to talk to. She was a very special friend and will be missed. Sorry that I am unable to be there, but just know that thoughts and prayers are with you all.
