Judith, We are sorry to hear of Doyle's passing. We know you two have been very good friends and companions for many years and he will be greatly missed. We always enjoyed visiting with the two of you---Doyle was such a soft-spoken, good-natured personality. His smile and soft laugh were contagious. I loved visiting his lovely home with that beautiful back yard and the view from the deck of the mountains and river valley! We send our condolences to his son, also, even though we've never met him. It's a sad time when a family member passes from our lives. You know you have our sympathy and we love you.
