My sincerest condolences go to Larry, Larry, Jr, Lori, Mark and the entire family.
Doris was a very special woman who I enjoyed knowing as a sweet friend and co-worker at RVOS.
She always had a warm smile and sweet hello. Her greatest joy was her children and grandchildren. We enjoyed sharing many stories about life including sports, AggieLand, cooking, sewing and all the grandchildren's programs and sports they were involved in.
May you all find peace and comfort in all the wonderful memories your family has made. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
