Howard, Mandy and Family,
I enjoyed Doris' friendship for many years. She had a great sense of humor and always made me feel like family. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Although she leaves us here on this earth, she is rejoicing with her Spunky and Bill up in heaven. Your friend in Christ always, Jerry Rodriguez (Rio Rancho, NM)

Mrs. Harrison was our neighbor for many years. We enjoyed her friendship and great sense of humor so much. I know she is so happy now to be in heaven with Jesus and with her beloved husband Spunky. We will miss her!
