Aunty Doris was a huge part of my early childhood life, I'll forever fondly remember playing in the Thrift Shop in the mornings while she watched over me, and yes, even being made to sit on the stairs that went nowhere when I wouldn't listen. Your physical presence is gone, but your impact and our memories of you will live on. Gonna miss you. My heartfelt condolences to Terry, Rob, Norma, Charlotte, Lucielle and Sandra.
