Kay, Mel, and family of Doris,
I was so sorry to learn of Doris' passing. I shall always cherish the years we were neighbors when you kids were still at home and as you married and started your own familes. When someone you love so much passes, the memories become all the more precious. May God comfort you with those sweet memories. My thoughts and prayers are with each one of you.
