Love and sympathy to Doris' family . We were classmates at Lake Hamilton High School.
Our heartfelt condolences. You were great friends and neighbors for many years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
My aunt Doris was a smart and classy lady. She always welcomed me and made me feel loved and appreciated when I visited her home. I miss her beautiful smile and sweet soul, but I’m grateful to know that she is safe and well in God’s hands.
Doris was beautiful out and beautiful in. She was a delightful hostess at family get togethers--and Bill has a large family. She loved to travel. Always smiling and always trying to keep Bill in line! She is with God now. We will miss her.
I only knew Doris for about three years, but l heard a lot of stories about her. I know from the stories that I've heard, she loved her family. She took care of Bill when he was sick and she wouldn't have had it any other way. She liked showing people pictures of her family. She enjoyed traveling and playing tennis. I wish l could have meet her sooner, because l know from the stories I've heard, she was a caring and wonderful person. She is in a much better place now.
