Sending love to Doris' family and friends. She was my Mom's first cousin (Brenda Mills Hays) and I always remember her being so kind to me. I know she will be missed dearly.
Oh cousin what fun we have had over the years! We had so many cousins! They were always up for an adventure! Weâ€™ll miss you whenever we rollInto town and have our cousinâ€™s luncheon. We love you so much!
I don't have the words that should probably be said, except we were members of the Mills family that always loved each other and still do. Our families were very precious although like everyone else we had problems but never lost our family ties. You are no longer in painðŸ™ðŸ™ â¤â¤
Doris was such a loving and giving person. She was always taking care of someone. Her family, children, and grandchildren will surely miss her! Now she can look down from Heaven and watch over all she cares for!!
