Dear Doris, In the late 60's, I was a teenager working at Slenderella on Cambelback Road in Phoenix when I met you. I wore your husbands POW bracelet for all those long years he was gone and watched how you survived an incredibly difficult ordeal with courage, hope, and uncommon grace. Having grown up as an Army "brat", I understood only too well the hardships most families endure but yours was extraordinary. You may not have realized it at the time but you were an inspiration to a young girl and so many others and I have never forgotten you. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss and yet I am so happy to know that you and Bud spent many long years together after the last time I saw you. Much, much love to you, lovely lady.
