Doris was a beautiful Christian lady, that I greatly admired. No matter the pain, she was always smiling!
As a cancer survivor, Doris & I had chatted on messenger a lot thru her journey. I will forever be grateful for the courage she provided me in my journey.
My mother passed a year before my diagnosis. So, Doris was a great encouragement for me.
Doris and Mom are now singing in heaven.

Dianne, I'm praying for you and your family. May you all find peace that only God can provide.
