Doris was a special lady and our lives are richer because she was in them. We have so many fond memories of the times we spent with her from trips to Kansas City, the beach, the Outer Banks, and just sitting around the table. Her sense of humor and her ability to laugh brought joy to many of us. We were always eager to hear her stories of her life experience and to reminisce with her and we treasure the times we were in her presence. May God wrap his arms around her loved ones and comfort them during this sad time. Doris leaves a remarkable legacy in her loving children and grandchildren. We love you.
