    My thoughts & prayers go out to all of you. Losing Doris is not only like losing a best friend but to me like losing my precious Aunt that raised me and my Mom all over again. I love her so much and we really had some good times together. I will miss our daily chats and sometimes more than once a day. She use to laugh when I would call earlier than usual and would say "You beat me to it again". My peace comes in knowing she is in a better place and sitting with Jesus. What a glorious occasion that will be for us all. We will see all of our loved ones again. God be with you all and know I wish I could be with you. Hope to see you when she is interred. God bless you. Mary P. Musselwhite
