I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Doris. Like Karen, I too have wonderful childhood memories of the slumber parties at Doris and Earl’s house, and the beautiful crafts Doris created. She will be missed. Uncle Earl, I am praying for you and your family.

I am saddened by the passing of Aunt Doris. Many childhood memories have been gracing my thoughts: slumber parties, mushroom picking, making horseradish sauce, gardening and canning, the plastic canvas crafts, beautiful doilies, and how she would wrap gifts so beautifully. Uncle Earl - may God give your peace and comfort during this time.
