Not sure what to say?

Doris and Dwight lived in Los Alamos, New Mexico for a short time. Doris was a visiting teaching companion with my mother, Hazel Burns. Hazel moved to Orem shortly after my father Darrel passed away. We found a perfect condo for her. We were thrilled to find out Doris and Dwight would be one of her new neighbors. Their kindness will always be remembered.

Dear Bro. Dixon,
The news of your lovely wife's death was such a shock to me as I went to the website for The Worcester Telegram and Gazette and decided to look through the obituaries for the past 14 days.

I am so sorry I didn't do it sooner. Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of Doris. The gospel gives us some peace knowing we will be together again. Hold that thought and may the Lord hold you in His loving arms.

Doris' 4th cousin twice removed

Uncle Dwight - I was so sorry to hear about Aunt Doris. I remember fondly the trip my dad, my daughter Britt, and I made to visit you in the summer of 2000. Britt, Greg, Marie, and I send our condolences.

Dear Dwight and Family: Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you. May loving memories keep you close and bring you comfort and peace.

Doris, along with her brother Paul and sister Alice were in my parents wedding party. Rosabel and Wallace Taylor were married in Worcester, MA and the three Bergstoms' were my dad's cousins. Rosabel is still living and I have relayed news of Doris death to her. I knew the mother of Doris (Olga) and was at her 100th Birthday party, two years before she passed.

Dixon Family,
I had the pleasure of serving your mother as a worker at Courtyard at Jamestown. I will never forget your mother's laugh that could always brighten my rough days. What a sweet lady she was. My thoughts are with you at this time.

I just knew Doris a short time. We were in the same ward together. Her health was declining and she was using a walker when I first met her. Her husband was always so caring and attentive to her. Even under such circumstances they always came to the ward activities. One time I remember in particular it was snowing and cold. The roads and sidewalks were icy. And yet they were coming to the ward party. I was so impressed with their devotion and enthusiasm. The other delightful memory...

I will never forget my second cousin once-removed, Doris Dixon. We first met when I was a college student in the early 1970s, researching my Swedish ancestry. I initially corresponded with her mother, Olga Silven Bergstrom, but she told me that her daughter Doris was "the expert". How true that was! That was the start of our collaboration in researching our common ancestors. Doris was always such a kind and giving person; always willing to help me and teach me the ins and outs of...
