Grandmom, how can I just add one memory? We have so many we share together that I cherish with all my heart. From taking me to swimming, gymnastics, and clarinet lessons to seeing Disney movies at the movies, showing me how to garden, our little road trips to visit Grandpop when he was working out of town, the list is infinite. You gave with all your heart and poured all your love into your family. Now I’m about to venture into motherhood and I wish you could here to guide me. I know you will be in Heaven watching over us. Everyday I will make sure your legacy continues as I make memories with my little one. You are and always will be my sunshine. I miss you so much and love you more! Xoxo -Kris

To Joe and family. I am so sorry to see in the paper that Doris passed away on my birthday. I worked with Doris at A L Lotts cafeteria. She was a dedicated and hard worker. All the staff and students liked her. I was the cafeteria manager. She did an excellent job on the program that we started at Lotts. It was breakfast in the bag. Kristine, I still have and use the Christmas apron that you made for me. God bless you all at this time and may Doris's memory be eternal.
