Aunt Doris you have been an inspiration to your younger brother Jack, and his family throughout their lives. We lived in Arizona since 1992 but are hearts were always with you. Our best memories were coming to visit you and your boys and your place.

To John and Tim, So sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. Her loss is the loss of a 40 year friend of mine. She had broad shoulders for me to cry on in dark times. I always felt better after taking to her, may it be in person or on the phone. Her death has left a large hole in my heart. She has no more worries, she is now in God's hands.

I'm so sad hearing this news John and Tim. Your mom was an amazing lady and took care of me like I was her own in my younger days. There aren't words to describe the loss you must feel. The only good is she isn't in anymore pain.
My love and prayers are with you and please stay in touch.

Aunt Doris was the epitamy of the Woman I wanted to become when I grew up ,to say I idolized her is putting it mildly.I adored her! She showed me by her actions numerous times that it is o.k. to be strong and independent and being a lady did not mean you had to take any shit from anyone.I saw her change a tire in high hills and a fur coat.She would keep her yard and house emaculat ..She was the only girl with 4 brothers so She took care of her boys.She took care of Her parents till they passed and talked to my Daddy every night on the phone till he passed.She had a heart of gold and when you were around her you knew you were loved.Enjoy the reunions in Heaven Aunt Dorsey..until we meet again.Tammy.
