Aunt Doris was, from the first time I met her at age 8, my favorite Aunt. I admired her dedication and loyalty to her family. I loved it when she and Uncle Lloyd visited my home in Albuquerque, NM in the late 80’s. I have many memories of many visits and reconnecting in 2002 and our last visit in her home in 2014. We had so much fun and laughed a lot. In May I was able to say goodbye to a beautiful lady. Blessings to Phil and Sheila, Marsha, and Laura and Tony. She’s forever with our Lord.

Doris was a sweet lady and friend. I went to see her with Laura and met her dad long, long, time ago. They were sweet friends. I will miss them they are in Heaven up there wth my dad. I will continue to pray for the family. If you get on grief they will send a email everyday with a devotional on it and it will help you through this hard time. It sent it to me for two years. It helped me . Love you Nikki ball

My deepest sympathy to the family. My dad(Bill Bonds) worked with Mr. Ledbetter and we knew the family well. My mother (Peggy Bonds) passed away on March 27, 2017. Presently, dad is doing allright. Again, my deepest sympathies to the family.
