Dear Chuck and Family, We were blessed to know your Mom as a friend of my Mom in the Arboretum and through her we were able to meet a few of you. Tom enjoyed the Tuesday Memory Cafe dinners and we all enjoyed the Roaring 20's party with all of us dancing with our Mom's in costume. Your Mom was a beautiful, sweet, friendly and very kind lady. Sorry that we missed the service for her as we've only just heard of her passing this evening. Our heartfelt sorrow for your loss and we will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers as you learn to live without her precious smile. She and you all will be missed around WT...once we can get back to visiting with my Mom and the other family members. Hopefully we will meet sometime once this is in our past. Until then, please take care and know your Mom will be missed by us. Sincerely, Jo Ann and Tom Brennan (Doris' family)
