  2. Mary and I have been blessed by having known Doris. We were lucky to meet her years ago and were able
    to talk on the phone many times as well as visit in person with her a couple of times each year for both of us. What a wonderful lady Doris was. We are sorry for your loss and will keep you in our prayers. Doris
    always felt blessed by her life, her family, and the many opportunities that came her way. She was always
    mentioning her family and how lucky She was that they were close. We pray for God’s blessing upon her,
    and upon all of you!
    Mike and Mary Limoges

  4. Barb and Duwayne and Doug and Lynn
    So sorry to hear about loss of your Mother,
    I have a place in Heaven
    please don’t sing sad songs for me, forget your grief and fears, for I am in a perfect place
    Away from pain and tears, I’m away from hunger and hurt and want and pride, I have a place in Heaven,
    With the Master at my side. All the pain and grief is over, Every restless tossing passed, I am now at peace forever. Safely home in heaven at last. My heart is filled with happiness, and sweet rejoicing too, To
    walk with God is perfect peace a joy forever new.
