The pictures are very good. She looked so much like my mom. I remember family reunions in Missouri. How great it was.

Doris, Scott and Family,
Reta and I are saddened to hear that your Mother passed from this life. We both together only knew your Mom for a short time in her long life. But, every time we did have the pleasure of those family get-to-gathers your Mom warmed our hearts. We felt at home around your Mom because her children warmed our hearts—She raised two wonderful , loving, caring, children who expressed their up-bringing values with the lives that they touched. Doris and Scott, we love you both very much because you first loved us. Jesus Christ was the first to die because he first loved, is it any wonder why your Mom would not have done so, as well. My [Bob] fondest memories of your Mom go way back when I was young lad hanging around with my brother Don and you, Scott. Doris and Scott, your home was always a warm family home and those cookies and other food goodies always delighted me. The warm home, delicious snacks and family get together always made a young boy like me light up like a Christmas tree inside. I always thought my brother Don was so lucky to have a beautiful lady like you Doris for his life mate. Listen guys; please allow me to say that had it not been for your sweet Mom, my life would never have been blessed by your presence. So let me say this to your passing Mother--Thank you Mrs. Boles for your two precious children whom have been a big part of the Daugherty family for most of their Maryland lifetime and we all love them dearly and will watch over them until our time comes to bid this world farewell. Mrs. Boles, you and your gracious goodness have left a footprint in time that will remain a memorial in the lives that Doris and Scott have and will to continue to have for years to come. May you, Doris and Scott, carry your Mom's memory with the honor, dignity, and respect that she deserved as your Mom and give thanks to God that he allowed her to be your MOTHER.
Godly blessings from Bob and Reta
