There’s not enough words to express the happiness you brought with your presence. It was a blast every time you showed up to a family gathering. I’ll miss our bantering and “discussions”.

Just remember when you get to those pearly gates to flash that contagious smile and shake that money maker and you’ll be running the place in no time.

I’ll miss you. Until we meet again.
Love Don.

P.S. Save me a place at the table.

Remember how I picked you flowers, I remember how it touched your heart. I rejoice in knowing you are with Jesus, who sees you as his flower.
I love you deeply mom, Love Butch.

Doris was a real character! She constantly had a witty remark at the tip of her tongue! She'd joke with Don all the time, being quite the flirt. She always brought a smile to my face.

She so enjoyed spending time with my mom. The two would sit together sipping their Sangria, just chit chatting and laughing away. My mom and Doris would go get pedicures together, shop together, and spend hours in a restaurant eating at their leisure (probably driving the servers crazy because they would stay so long) :).

When Cheryl and Bryan would be away on a trip, I would check in with Doris daily. She'd talk for just a few minutes--and then abruptly say, "Ok, thanks for calling" and boom, the call was over. It always had me chuckling.

On one of those occasions, she called me quite distraught! I thought something terrible had happened! She was nearly in tears. Turns out she couldn't get her remote control for the TV to work and they were talking in a different language. She wanted me to fix it over the phone. I was at work, so couldn’t help her, but given how frantic she was I called my nephew Dakota who so graciously rushed to her rescue.

She was a great part of this family! We all loved her and will always hold those memories close!

When Doris would come to a family gathering her smile and presence always added life to the party. Her quick wit and humor brought laughs and joy into our lives. She will certainly be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Until we meet again.

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” - Revelation 21:4

My memory of Doris is that she was a genuinely a very sweet person. She held her own in conversations and always had a witty come back. She was so fun and I see why my mom and her became such good friends. I'm going to miss Doris but I know we will see her again when we all wake up together.

Doris was a VERY special person. I'm not just saying this because she passed away. I really thought she was. I loved Doris, everybody who met her did. Especially my MOM, they became BEST friends when Doris moved to Washington. The two of them would always drink their Sangria together. SO CUTE!
When my Mom passed away, I felt like Doris was never the same. I have missed her at some of the family gatherings since then. I'm happy they will share the same memorial planter together in our yard. We plan to make it very spectacular and as beautiful as we can.

Doris was such a witty and quick to respond kind of lady. " I think she was a young person trapped in an older person's body." She loved to give people a hard time, but in a funny, nice way. She was always joking with the young men....maybe flirting with them in a way. LOL I will never forget Don and Doris talking about "Pole Dancing" OMG....that was so hilarious.

Doris LOVED Cats! I wish Doris could have had a cat near her side at all times while she was home alone. It's so sad that Petunia died.

Doris loved her makeup and jewelry bling. I thought it was so cute how she would have to always dress up for any occasion. Her favorite color was Turquoise, so of course we always tried to find jewelry in her favorite color for her gifts.

I'm not sure what else to say. I'm very sad that I won't see Doris at our family gatherings, but I will look forward to seeing her in heaven. In my mind she is with my MOM and her husband in heaven right now. That will make me smile!
