    Aunt Doris was a family favorite of mine. So many life event memories. She took me to my 1st day of kindergarten. My mom learned the news of her father's passing and drove to her job with me in the back seat to tell her the tragic news. Riding with her in the cab of a pickup while our family put up hay. But the sweet part was her delicious baking skills. Soar with the angels Aunt Doris.

    Sandy, Alan and family, Aunt Doris was always so kind to me over the years. I will cherish my last visit I took with my mom when I see Aunt Doris last. May she rest in the arms of angels.

    Aunt Doris May you being 🎶 with the angels right now. You always amazed me about the things you could do from the way you could cook to the way you could take care of the farm and act like it was nothing. I wished I could have told you Thank you for taking me to VBS and to SS on the weekends. But I am sure you knew it.Love ya lots. Sing High Aunt Doris
