Aunt Doris was a shining star. She would cheer you up no matter what the circumstances were. She was the life of a party and a dancing machine! All the good times we had when we visited in Michigan as a kid, and we never went hungry at the hotel. And playing cards at the house when they moved to Florida. She always made me laugh with her stories. We will truly miss her and love her dearly! So happy she died on her anniversary to go dancing with Dick! He must of accompanied her to heaven! This is what romance stories and movies are made from! There must be one huge dance party in heaven!
