Doris was a great friend and neighbor. We enjoyed good times together and I am going to miss her very much. Love and prayers,Juanita Wilson

I will always cherish the fond memories of your precious Mother and the time spent at your home. I especially enjoyed our conversation when she celebrated her 90th birthday. Heaven has another angel named Doris.
I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

I was so sorry to hear the news of Doris' passing. Doris was one of the finest people I have ever met. She was compassionate with everyone, devoted to her family and nursing.

We were neighbors for many years and have lots of memories of our time together. She will be missed.

So sorry for your loss. Aunt Doris was a wonderful person. Some of my best memories were spending holidays with her and her family. She will be greatly missed.

I was very lucky to have met Doris while delivering flowers to her the third Friday of each month. She always had the most beautiful arrangements sent by her family. I so much enjoyed our short visits & always looked forward to them. She always put a smile on my face & I always tried to do the same for her. She reminded me so much of my mother. I never knew of her illness because our visits were always about making each other happy. We spoke of family & at times prayed together. ...

An Angel has gain her wings you fought a good fight. The victory has been won. Your afterglow will remain with family and friends. In sweet loving memories of loving Mother. Our prays and thoughts are with the family and friends.
