So many visits with you when I was younger! I remember your love of music and you playing the organ. I also remember you would always end our visits with a jar of pickled cucumbers! And the books of photos... I cheerish those visits! You were always happy to see Tommy, my dad! Oh how he adored you! God Bless you Great Aunt Doris. Love, Dawn Medina ( Wanosik)

Doris was a very sweet and upbeat person. I'll bet she's dancing away up in heaven as we speak. She made the lives of people she knew much happier.
