I remember the first time we met. I remember walking in and immediately becoming your daughter. I loved our time together. Being roommates and just hanging out. Thank you for loving me and being my mom unconditionally. I love you so much

Oh my dear "grandma" Doe, you are missed by so many of us!!! I remember the apartment on main street in Mitchell and "Blue" (big black dog), I was SO SCARED of him outside in the backyard but inside I had no fear. You told me not to worry for he won't hurt me because he is gentle and full of love. After I went to Job Corps and came back with my oldest 2 baby girls, you and Den couldn't believe how much I grew. My mom, Shirley and y'alls friend Patty did a wonderful job at that Christmas program with Nichole, Elsie and other children. Since last seeing you back in 2004ish, I've had 3 more children and a grandson. Do you remember your first grandchild?
When Cristi got married and was pregnant someone used ??his?? her shoe lace and her/his wedding ring and held it over her basketball belly and a certain way it swong was going to determine the sex of their baby.
Your voice so warm and gentle on the phone, your physical hugs so tight and sincere, How will we fill that void in us?Remembering your advice to each of us different, but to all of us the same, "I LOVE YOU"!!! These words we will long to hear the rest of our lives, but at these times, the memories we will strive to feel. To all my "FAMILY " thru you, I pray and ask God to be with you in this time of sorrow.
This pains me deeply, not to be there for I was able to hug you with Den. So my hugs now go to y'all, (Christi I know). Please give Denis and Blue hugs from me, watch over us all, and keep us close. For "OUR FATHER'S HOUSE" is a big, big house and when we come home to you, let's get those hugs and party hardy, for NOW we are ALL grown, we have all missed, and, are now home.

Wishing I could be there,
Nikki Vanessa Cochrun

So very sorry to hear about Doris. I was so happy to share a daughter Rae Anne with her and gained a daughter with Chrissy. Our friendship really didn't start until after many years but glad we had a friendship.

There are so many memories of Mom to share that it's hard to choose one. I will share a funny one though. I was 8 months pregnant with my son Christopher when the whole family went camping at Lake Minatare. We played tricks on Jim Senter and someone came up with me doing the "catfish shuffle". It was a fun weekend and it was typical for a family get-together. We enjoyed BBQs and holiday dinners as a family also with lots of laughter and maybe some water fights thrown in too. Mom, I love you and will miss you! Please hide the rubber bands from Dad!!
