It's been three years since you went home with the LORD. I know that it must be so serene where you are. I'm looking forward to the day that I will be there with you. But, for the time being, I will enjoy what the LORD has given me here. We have many good memories as children with the whole family together. With seven kids at that time, there were times that we had to take two cars to go anywhere, but there was a lot fun at Stony Beach, swimming and marshmallow and weenie roasts. There was a time that when half of us were small, the big kids sat in the seats and the little ones had to set on their laps as we all piled in one car. I'm praying for Leroy to be able to move on and heal, because I know that it must be hard for him, especially on your anniversaries and birthdays, which is coming up. You are missed by all of us.

Yesterday, we said our good byes and it was difficult but it's always hard to let go of people that you care about. Not only was she talented, she was very intelligent and an avid reader. What ever she would put her mind to she would put her wholeself into it and do an excellent job, no matter what it was. Loved her sense of humor and playing card games with her. She would always win but between Doris and Lee, it was fun anyway. I will miss her and there is an empty place in my heart. I know that she is in a much better place.

Julie and I will miss our very contested euchre games that we played with Doris and LeRoy. Doris hated to loose so bad that Skinny and I would have to throw a couple of games at the end of the night so that he didn't have to sleep on the couch. Rest in peace our friend.

Dear Lee, Chris, Diane, Terry & Alex,
I am so very sorry for the passing of your precious wife Doris, your mom and grandmother from our view and know she is not suffering now but oh how much it hurts and we miss her so.
She loved you all so deeply and thought about you all the time. I pray Heavenly Father be with you all at this sad time and comfort you.
Love, sister-in-law and Aunt Donna

Dearest Doris Kay whom our mom lovingly nicknamed Kitty, oh how my heart is hurting now and I miss you so very much already.

Kitty you were so loving to all your family and so generous with your love and gift giving and especially your talents of crocheting and jewelry making.

I get many compliments when I wear some of the necklaces and bracelets you made for me.
It was always fun when you and Lee would come down to Spring Lake and spend the week end and we would shop and play games. Those were precious times for me and you too.
I know dear sister that you believed in more after this life and you were not afraid to die and go beyond the veil.
You endured your many illnesses well and did not complain other than you just wished you could feel better like you used to before!
I know Heavenly Father has welcomed you with loving arms and has said "Well done my daughter!"

Love always,
sister Donna
