I extend my condolence to the family
. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 and Isaiah 41:10 will bring comfort to your hearts . Also our Loving God Jehovah gives us a beautiful promise at Revelation 21:4 . There He tells us that soon , He will wipe away all tears from our faces , because even death will be no more .

Doris was a wonderful neighbor. She walked daily and knew everyone! She would carry candy for the little children in one pocket and dog treats in the other. The neighbor dogs recognized her voice and would run to the fence for their treat. Doris made everyone feel special when she was with them. Thankfully her son, Mark, was able to live with her so she could remain in her home. She was such a devout Christian so we know she'll be our Guardian Angel. Virginia & Bob Crilley
