Please accept my condolences on the passing of your mother. What a gracious and wonderful lady she was! We were her and your dad’s neighbors growing up on Myrtle Avenue and they were wonderful people who I have thought of fondly over the years. May God grant you peace and comfort and may it help to know that others care.

Sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. She was a very special lady. I enjoyed the time I worked with her at the bank. She always made you smile. It is never easy losing a parent. I lost my Dad this past summer. I have great memories of him as I am sure you have great memories of your Mom. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

We were so sad to hear your mom had passed. What a wonderful lady. I loved to see her and Mary Louise bopping around town. I remember one time I went to a girls’ basketball game out of town with them and had a total riot. Doris loved her sports, didn’t she? I know it is so hard to lose your mommy. I hope the happy memories take over soon. Fondly, Paul and Susie Zdroik

Greg and I are so sorry for your loss. Doris was our neighbor on Myrtle Avenue and then also on Kennedy Drive. When I think of her I think of her beautiful smile and lovely personality. I know her children were her heart. We hope the wonderful memories will help ease the sorrow you are feeling at this time. She was such a nice person and she will truly be missed by all who knew her.
