  3. Ruth, our girls, and I send our deepest, heartfelt condolences to each of you–Scott, Robin, and Chris. And for all of Aunt Doris’ beloved grandchildren, and each of your spouses. I have fond memories of my time spent in Doris’ home and playing in the yard with my cousins. Please accept my virtual hugs. I can relate to what you are feeling at this time. An enormous piece of fabric has been taken from your lives. I offer these words of comfort: Psalms 34:18 “The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit.” God Almighty must be close to you at this time, if it is possible for Him to be closer to some, than others. We love you.

  4. One of my favorite Aunts. Always had a bright smile and a cheerful story to tell. Definitely loved by all her family. Will be greatly missed.
    We will keep her and her family in my prayers.
