    It is with great sadness that I learn of Doris passing. She was a good friend to many and will be sorely missed. I am very sorry that I missed her funeral having had hip surgery. Two good things, Doris is now out of pain, and she is with her love, Jim. Both were loved by everyone who knew them. My condolences to her family, extended family and friends. We love you Doris my friend, I hope you are dancing with your hubby. Xoxo
