Always enjoyed a great cup of coffee, usually some yummy treats and certainly good conversation with Doris. I will miss you and have been blessed to know you and call you my friend. Prayers to Doris' family and especially to sweet Zachary. "His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!' Matthew 25:21

We became friends when I worked at Big "D" . Am sad to hear of your death. May God bless you and your family. RIP my friend - see you on the other side. Remember my burial site is just a few feet from yours in the Miller Plot at Graceland.
