We are so sorry to hear of Doris' passing. What fond memories I have of being a young boy and working with Doris and George on their garden, eating fresh tomatoes with a sprinkle of salt, and playing with the wooden toys that they had for us. Doris was an extra special person, someone who was always there to listen, offer sound and wise advice and be patient enough to know when to offer it. Doris routinely crosses my mind, and she will be sorely missed. No doubt though... she leaves behind a legacy of people who were touched by her kindness and wise, witty way.

To Ed, Jim, Jerry and Bruce- So sorry to read about your mom's passing. She was a very special lady and she and your dad were the most wonderful neighbors anyone could ask for. Your mom was kind and caring and oh, so wise. Her quilts were such a thing of beauty - I used to love it when she showed me what she was working on. I know she will be sorely missed, as her family was everything to her. Our thoughts and prayers to you all. Love, the Little's
