Wanda, Wayne and family, I am so sad to hear of Doris' passing. I think of her so often. She was so kind to me during the Accident and our loss of Quincy. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She was truly one of God's chosen and she lived for Him. Please know my prayers are surrounding each of you.
My love, Ann
