Doris was one of the kindest and sweetest woman I’ve ever know. I will never forget her beautiful spirit and generous gift to me and my girls. I will always hold a special place in my heart for her.

Very sorry to hear about Aunt Doris. I remember sharing times at camp and Aunt Doris discussing her rounds of golf but did not know she had three holes in one. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Jeff, Jocelyne, Mark and Erika
