I will always remember Aunt Doris and Uncle Randy for being exceedingly kind to my mother. She always sent the sweetest cards and truly wanted to know how things were going in my world and the activities of Miss Mary. From seeing her at Emanuel with Grandma to dropping in at the Holiday Inn to see her smiling face, she was a very real part of my time around Brunswick. I know that heaven is a brighter warmer place today with her, Papa Bogie, Uncle Randy and Uncle Arthur and many others finally reunited. I can only hope that her boys, daughters-in-law, siblings and grandkids can cherish the memories as the days move ahead. May she truly rest in peace.

I will always remember Aunt Doris for the smile she always shared and her wonderful laugh. As a child I was amazed watching her eat those hot farm grown peppers with her meal like they were just a piece of bread. To my cousins, you loss is truly shared, she was a wonderful lady. My heart goes out to you.

Hers was a great laugh, and the world is a little too quiet without it. But it echoes in us still. Goodbye, Aunt Doris.
