Our sincere condolences to the Vance Families. We got to know Doris & Roger at the Am Legion. They were quite the pair. Doris was always flying around the kitchen cooking and was good at it. Memories are cherished by us all when loved ones are departed here and reunited with other loved ones. May she rest in peace. Linda & Don
