I just found out about Doris' death. I wondered why I did not get her usual early Christmas card, went online and discovered this. I worked at 60 Centre St NYC with Doris for many years. I was a young, energetic lawyer as opposed to being an old , tired lawyer. Words cannot not express how I loved Doris. She always had a smile on her face and always looked at the bright side of life. She will be forever in my heart and memory. And she often talked about her family and expressed the love she had for them. My deepest condolences to all.

I have very fond memories of Doris in Kearny and at Kearny High School, as well as Avon-by-the-Sea. The whole Antonas family were wonderful and loving and will miss Doris very much. My husband, Ron and I send our thoughts to you.
Most sincerly,

I belately express my sincerest thoughts to Doris' family. Since retirement, the years distance all of us, but we think of each other now and then, "where is she; what is she doing. . . ". I was sadden to hear of her passing; wondering whether she smiled her way into paradise or did she struggle her way to that soft light we all look for at our end. But, knowing her commitment to friends and family, I'm sure she was not alone; indeed, she was surrounded by love. I only wished I got to see her one last time...... love you for the years you made me smile and laugh. Fondly, Louis.

Doris was a wonderful person who we got to know when I worked for Justice Schlesinger in NY Supreme Court. It is a great loss for everyone who ever had the pleasure of knowing her. Rest in peace Doris.

It was an honor to know Doris. She was a wonderful person and a great friend to our family. We will remember her fondly always, but especially when we drive down Bryn Mawr Ave.

So so sorry to hear about the loss of our dear cousin Doris. I wish we could be there, but I'm glad we were able to have some good (and funny, of course) conversations with her recently. We will miss her and will always remember her wonderful smile, sense of humor and contagious congeniality.
Please extend our deepest condolences to the entire family. We wish you all strength during this difficult time.
