My mother-in-law, Doris was a great lady and wonderful caring person. It was my honor to be her daughter-in-law for many years. The family has lost a wife, a mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great grandmother. Doris always had a kind word for everyone who knew her and her family gave her the most joy in life. She always treated me with kindness and we joked around a lot, teased each other, went out to eat together and I really loved her very much and she'll be missed by me and the family. We spent many Christmas holidays at her home and shared good times and laughs. As the family was looking at her photographs, I saw one of Doris at 17 or 18 years old and was blown away by her beauty. She was a gorgeous young woman, it just took my breath away. I'll love Doris always and keep her memory with me. I know she is at peace and will be looking after us and we'll meet her again one day.
