My mother would take us to the Doukas house after church. Mary Ann had such a profound love for me and my brothers that it was immediately apparent with just a smile that we were welcome as family. When she offered us something to eat and drink, it wasn’t out of some learned social behavior but rather from her sweet soul. Few people in my life have touched my heart in such a meaningful way. It is truly what life here is all about.
