We were saddened to hear of Doris' death. I have memories of her and her family from Baptist Tabernacle--playing basketball and softball, with Earl as coach. My condolences to her family.

I have known Doris literally ALL of my life. It is my understanding that her Mom and my Mom shared a room after giving birth to us. I was born on May 29th. We both attended Shawnee High School and Baptist Tabernacle. I eventually lost touch with her, but will always remember her as a "forever" friend. May God bless her family.

To Nana's Family: Thank you for sharing her with all of us and letting her be our "Nana", too. She took excellent care of my baby and we felt like we were a part of her family, too. I can't believe she's passed on...but I have a feeling she'll still be taking care of those she left behind one way or another. She just seemed to have THAT much love in her.
With love, compassion and sadness,
The Lucas Family (including "Baby Eric" as she always called him)
