I grew up living next to Doris and Ray. They were like family to us and I have very fond memories of them both. They will always be a huge part of my life. Doris and my mom were very good friends during my childhood. So many laughs and talks on the porch during the summer. I will miss Doris so much. I am very sorry for your loss. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers.
