We extend our sympathy to all of the Doty family. I have fond memories of Howard, Marjorie and Billy during my childhood. Howard's brother, Paul, was
my wonderful stepfather. I know the precious memories of Howard will help heal your loss.

My sympathy and prayers are with you now. I know you are feeling a terrible loss. Mr. Doty was my friend and neighbor for nearly 15 years and there will never be another Howard Doty.

God bless you,

My prayers and thoughts are with the Doty family. God has allowed another of His children to go home for that we must rejoice.

Matthew 6:19 - 21
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
