It's hard to think of Doris and not think of my brother since the night they were married. I can't think of a time we saw one and not the other until Bud got sick and had to live elsewhere. I was always in awe of the time Doris spent in making sure their yard was a show place, and I couldn't believe it when she said she planted 600 marigolds, and that happened a lot of years. Bud took credit for the vegetable garden, but I know she had a big hand in that too. Our car was always loaded with veggies after a visit. I've never forgotten the sweet peas she had growing on the side of the garage. The time we spent the most time together was on the trip through the Canadian Rockies traveling by bus, sea plane, ferry, train and car. Lots of memories and many pictures! I miss both of them! Hugs and blessings to all of you. Let's always keep in touch. I love the picture of Doris.
