I was very fortunate to have met Doris almost 4 years ago and able to be a recipient of her loving and caring nature. Whenever I visited she always welcomed me with a warm smile and that twinkle in her eye. I will miss our visits very much but my heart is full for what a blessing she was to me and how my life will never be the same since knowing her. When I would leave she would always say "I'll see you when I see you." And I look forward to seeing her again someday. In the meantime, Rest in Peace Dear Friend! You are an AMAZING woman! I Love you!

Doris was my mother in law at one time. If ever God sent a saint or angel it would have been Doris. She had a great scense of humor, very caring and loving heart. I am sure the people who knew Doris would agree. I loved Doris greatly and I am sure she will be missed by many. My condolences to her family. She was the greatest of all in my book. Jan
