Brad sure will miss “Mama.” He loved her like his own grandmother. What a big impact she had on his life. We loved her as well. She will be missed.

Although I never called her “Aunt” Doris ( because she always seemed so young that it just didn’t feel right), Doris was a favorite aunt of mine! She was always fun, busy, caring, and giving. When I was young we hardly ever got to see the J.T. Elliotts because they were always traveling the world with the Navy. So it was fun when J.T. retired from the Navy and they moved to Tuscaloosa. Then they actually got to GO TO watch Doris’s beloved Alabama football team play! Doris was definitely a “top 10” fan of Alabama!
Doris, we will miss you, and thank you for a life well lived! ❤️🌹❤️
