    Doris was a special lady who loved her Lord and family.  We are blessed that we got to know her a little bit over the past 25+ years.  Our deepest sympathies to the family.

    My mom is the great spiritual leader of my family. She showed us not only how to live but how to pass on. She was surrounded by all her children and playing games for hours on end with all her visitors her final day. I think it was exactly how she would've chosen (other than being in the hospital) to spend her last day. I know she was ready to rejoin the family she has waiting for her in heaven. She enjoyed all the people in her life but Loves her Lord and was ready to go be with him and those she has been missing down here. Love you Mom.
