Weeping may endure for a night but Joy comes in the morning. Words cannot convey the beauty of Ms. Archer inside and out. She had a warm welcoming and inviting spirit that had me calling her mom shortly after meeting her. I met Ms. Archer through her daughter Shirley, a proud, strong and caring woman who inherited her mother’s capacity for giving unconditional love to others.
Ms. Archer was the gift in my life that kept on giving each time I talked to her or saw her from a distance. Her words of encouragement, wisdon and insight will forever remain with me and guide me. I can only hope that I will grow old with as much grace, dignity, posie and beauty as Ms. Archer.
You will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing you. My thoughts, prayers and well wishes to the family, friends and loved ones of Ms. Archer
Shirley, Tanya, Everad, Jessica and to the rest of the family of Ms Doris Archer my condolences go out yo each of you. I was very saddened to hear of the passing of your loved one. Heaven has gained another precious child of GOD!! For the word says to be absent from the body is to be present with the LORD. Ms Archer was such a loving,cheerful, full of life, happy with such an infectious laugh. She was the best at making sure that if you had the pleasure of being in a room with her you the laughter and joy would take you over. Family I know you will miss her, but I know you won’t forget her.
Tanya and family,
May Ms. Doris’ infectious smile and the memories of her love for you be a source of solace. God is yet able to heal.
What a beacon of light and love Ms. Doris was to everyone who knew her. Heaven gained a truly worthy angel. May God’s grace grant you peace as you grieve and rejoice for a life so full and complete.
We met Doris when she became caregiver to our daughter Holly, and later our son Ian. We quickly became family as she welcomed us, and all those in her care. She helped me through so many of life’s challenges, and made me a better mother. Thank you Doris for your loving ways, and your infectious laugh! You were an angel on earth, and now God welcomes you into His glory! May God comfort your family at this time of loss. You are forever in our hearts.
