It would be hard to imagine the Burger Percheron Ranch without Doris. She always kept a watchful and wise eye on the horses and knew everything about them. She was especially helpful on my visit three years ago in getting to know and handle all of the horses.
My condolences to Beth, Ryan and Braxton and the rest of the Burger family. I know she is missed dearly.

Joy & Beth,
Stu Young gave me a call and told me about your mother’s passing. It saddened me deeply. I cannot picture your mother without her enchanting smile. May God comfort you at this time and may light eternal shine upon her.

Dear Joy and Beth,
We were sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was a wonderful lady. Richmond School was fortunate to have her as our cook. She took an interest in all the kids. She will be missed.
