Please accept my deepest condolences. I had the pleasure of knowing Doris over the last 6 months. She had a beautiful spirit about her. I will miss her beautiful smile while rocking in one of her favorite chairs each time I came to visit. I will surely be missing her. God Bless all that knew and loved her. May you find comfort in the days ahead.
Rest In Peace our dear Doris...
