Much has been said in this Guest Book about Mrs. Gardner's wonderful teaching, and her lasting influence on her many students. I had the double honor of having my two children in her classes and of being her colleague on the teaching staff at Palm Springs High School for many years. Doris was a major fan of my choirs and never failed to attend our campus concerts. She told me every year, following our Sounds of the Season holiday concert, "Now my Christmas season can begin!" Her support of our students extended far beyond her classroom, spreading across the campus and into the community.
On behalf of Eden, H.O., my wife Patty and myself, God bless Doris Gardner, as she has blessed many others, and keep her always in His care.
