    Doris we only new you for a short time but you brought lot of laughs and joy! Always teaching something to the kids about roads and directions! You have no reason to get lost you would tell them if you just remember what I tell you! You had lots of history to share and life’s lessons to teach from! RIP sweet lady and it is 5:00 somewhere.
