Doris was an Angel in my life and I will cherish her memory forever.
Hearing the news of Doris's "going home" reminds me of the wonderful Gaither song, When All of God's Singers Get Home.

What a blessing she was to so many people. She was a wonderful piano teacher and she was always so kind, gracious, and sweet to me even when I didn't practice! Donald and Karen, I'm so sorry for your loss but her love will stay with you always. Keep looking won't be long before we are all together again.

Theresa and I took lessons from Aunt Doris. I remember when Theresa was playing her sheet music,Aunt Doris told her it sounds close but you missed some notes
Theresa plays by ear and would try to copy because Aunt Doris would always play it for you first so you could hear how it should sound. She was the most patient and full of grace person I'll ever know and so proud to call my Aunt . When we went to our cabin in Indian Spring she brought the first orange danish rolls I ever had. And let's not forget the ketchup incident when she put ketchup in a glass container that I wouldn't touch cause I couldn't tell the brand!! She reminded me of that at her 90th birthday party.

I remember her letting me go to church concerts when Karen and Don were singing and letting me flip the pages for her while she played. Always included me and made me feel very special. I know she will be missed. I miss my mom every day especially on Valentine’s Day. May god give you peace.

How impossible to speak words at a time like this when the person you are speaking about gave their life working hard for you and never expected anything in return. Mom, the older I get the more I recognize how blessed I was to be influenced by your loving and godly example. Thank you for loving, supporting and caring for us and being the ultimate model of how to live life. You will be missed, until I see you again. Donald and Karen, I love you with all my heart and am praying for you to be strengthen by the Lord at this time. May the Lord surround you and your families with His presence and comfort.

Mrs Lum showed our boys, Parker and Quentin, love and grace as well as the love of the piano. She in turn, brought many years of joy as I listened to them play piano throughout their childhood. We loved our tradition of Thursday nights of coming to Mrs Lum and we are grateful this skill is something that they will always have and enjoy.
