    Doris was such a wonderful person and a good friend to Mom. Her and Uncle A G were always there to support their families, friends, church and community. So many wonderful memories. Thoughts and prayers for all.

    Judy, Even though you and I were the same age and went to school together, your mom and I
    spent more time together, discussing local history and exploring old cemeteries together. I have lots of good memories of time spent with her. She was a wonderful lady, and I’m glad I knew her.
    You are in my prayers, and will continue to be. Hope to see you some time again at a Class of 1962
    reunion.

    My deepest sympathy to you all. Ms. Doris was such a lovely, friendly, and outgoing lady. She always had a beautiful smile and a way of making you feel like an old friend. Remember all the wonderful times together.
    Keeping you all close in my thoughts. Love, Patti
