As I've grown older and raised kids of my own, and faced as we all do, life's challenges, I've realized what an amazing job you did raising us alone. How you did it I'll never know. I know we were a wild group but you steered us through and we are better people because of you and your sacrifices.

You are missed and were always loved.

Dear Doris

I wanted to thank you for bringing three beautiful children into the world and our family.

As they grew up, they became more endearing to us all, especially me!

Good job!

Love your sister, Susan

I sure do miss you Doris. Every time I cook something good I think, I should take Doris some, then I remember you are no longer my neighbor. I know you went straight to heaven and that I will see you again when my time comes to join my heavenly family. Until we meet again, Pat
