Dick, this is a long lost voice from the past, but I was trying to go down memory lane and I googled Lenora Holloway and somehow found you. Well, first, let me state how shocked and sorrowful I was to read of your dear wife, Doris, and her recent passing. I remember you all so much there in Decatur on Glenvally Drive. I even remember how Doris once tried to give me piano lessons, but much to my shame now, I just wasn't interested in learning the piano. I also saw a picture of you and was amazed at how you have changed. You look like a cross between Santa Claus and Charlie Daniels while holding your violin. But seriously, I read about your history of which I was totally unaware of when it was happening and I was a child growing up across the street from you. What an amazing story! I truly regret having never heard you perform. If you get this and wish to contact me, please do so at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a lot more I would like to tell and find out, but this isn't the place. In the meantime, please accept my most sincere condolences for the passing of Doris. She was an extraordinary woman and the type you don't find much anymore.
As Music Director at Mary Branan UMC, I served with this precious, magnificently gifted woman for nine wonderful years. What a complete delight she was, and how generous to tolerate my far lesser talents. Her ingenuity was inspiring. Often, when working with volunteer choirs, some choral passages proved very difficult but Doris would never fail to offer a workable solution in order to accomplish the work, one way or another. In her words, "there's the right way, the wrong way and the Holloway." I truly enjoyed and will deeply miss, "the Holloway", until we meet again.
We are so sad to hear of precious Doris' passing. She was such a funny, wonderful, talented and dedicated woman. I will never forget her beautiful smile, ever positive spirit and her dedication to the students at CJC. We pray for peace and comfort in the days ahead.
With deepest sympathy to the Holloway family during your time of grief...God is for you a refuge and strength, A help that is there to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead...(Psalm 62:8).
This is Frank Meadows. I'm so sorry to hear of Doris's passing. She and you were always so pleasant with me. I remember her coneflowers. I just wanted to express my heartfelt sympathy to you.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
I do remember Doris. When Henry(Emerson)and I went to Georgia to see his brother we visited Mr. and Mrs. Holloway .Doris was so kind to us. We went to see their beautiful house and her husband's antique cars. After that she took me in her car to a restaurant. in the car she told me about Heifitz's character. It was a nice memory I will carry with me forever. Sincerely, Yoshimi
Truly a wonderful person. Forever loving toward Homer. Blessings to the Family for your loss.
Our parents give us life, and shape much of who we are, but we don't realize who we can be, that deepest heart and mind within us, until we find our teachers, the ones that continue to shape how we think and experience and create our lives, long after the lessons are over, not only by their lessons but by their lives. Doris Holloway was such a person, for me, and many, many others. She will always be loved and missed.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Doris was a friend and mentor to me as she has been to so many. Her joyful spirit, her good humor and her loving heart will be deeply missed.
IM SORRY FOR YOUR LOST. MAY YOUR FAMILY RELY ON GOD IN THIS TIME OF GRIEF.
Losing Doris is a deep personal loss to many, especially Dick, Richard, and Lenora. I am also very sorry to lose such a dear musical friend of many years. May God bless you all. Sincerely, Emerson
