Dear Harvey and Family,
I was so saddened to hear about Doris. She was an amazing woman and she touched so many people's lives in so many positive ways. Certainly she made a big difference in my life which I will always appreciate. I will never forget her. My entire famly joins me in sending our condolences and heartfelt sympathy.

I remember Doris when I opened my Century 21 Office in Westwood. She was the first to send me a lovely plant and wished me well. What a classy lady. Bonnie Traylor

Dear Harvey and all the ALexander family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Doris was a great lady and she was so respected in the real estate world. When I joined Century 21 The Alexander's I was so proud to be associated with such a classy successful and professional organization. I love how we were held to very high standards and did business the old fashioned way - by looking you in the eye and following thru on promises.
I still wear my solid gold "busy bee' pin from Shreeves, a gift for 10 years of service - and it reminds me of how generous and concerned Doris was with all of her real estate family. In those days, no one ever left the firm because they all knew it was the best place to be!
Doris taught me a lot about how to be the best I could be, and she was always the consumate professional. To this day I can hear her helping me how to stage a house or hold firm in negociations.
We had lots of fun in those heady days - and I thank her and Harvey for all the good times we had.
I so regret never sending the card I always meant to - but I trust she knows now that I was praying for her and will continue to do so for her family.
I send love and thanks,
Ellen Sennott McGillivray
