I've had the pleasure of knowing Doris for many years. She and my Dad and his brothers were childhood playmates. I've always "known" about her and her ball playing abilities from the stories Dad told us kids. Then, as an adult, I had the pleasure of meeting her when I worked at the bank. And wherever I saw her.. we spoke for a minute or two.
She was an easy person to like and always asked how the family was doing. I loved to brag that I had a friend who was a "Hall of Fame" member! I told her I DID! haha She would smile SO big!!
You, Ms. Doris, did KNOXVILLE PROUD and were friends to many. It was easy to tell anyone where you lived. I simply said it was the neatest and prettiest yard on the street!!
Thank you for being who you were!! Dad and his brothers are already there and now... have fun and have a great game!! The "HEAVEN ALL STARS"!!
