  3. Doris was a lovely friend. Always high spirited, kind and so understanding. We were traveling buddies, and she always kept me laughing. She loved the Lord and now she’s with Him in his loving arms of care. She will be missed terribly, but her new home is brighter and fairer. Farwell my friend…but not good bye, memories last forever.
