Dear Bette, Barbara, Keith, Larry and Families,
So sorry for the loss of your Beloved Mother. A person who showed much love for her family. Just weeks ago I was at a luncheon with her and her siblings,
A joy to see her enjoy herself. She was quite chatty and checking out everyone entrees. At 91 she was stylish in her pant suit and of course her long chain necklace. She will be missed because she was such a treasure. I'm sure she's watching from about. Hoping all these beautiful memories bring you Peace. God Bless.
In Sympathy,

I worked for Doris once a month and she sure had a lot of spunk. Everytime I was there I would point out her pictures and we would have nice chats about all of the family. She loved her family very much and was very proud of all of them. I will miss her ! Prayers and hugs to all of the family at this sad time !!
With sympathy,
