Every year, for her birthday, Elizabeth and I would take Doris out to eat. We said we would go anywhere she wanted and she always chose breakfast at Newport Creamery. She knew it was Elizabeth’s favorite. Also, we would love the personalized tours of the Cape that Doris gave us every summer and playing BINGO afterwards. We will miss and love her always. We pray for comfort and peace for all who loved her.

Sending my condolences on the loss of your mother. Mrs. Allen was a class act - a lady in the truest sense of the word. May she find eternal comfort in the loving arms of our Lord.
