    Dear Uncle Jack and Family,
    We are so sad to receive the news of Aunt Doris’s passing. As a family, I express our sincere condolences and will always remember Aunt Doris for her open heart and kindness that she gave so freely. She was always so happy to share the goings on of all her loved ones. We were so fortunate to be able to share their special get -together this past summer. We will always remember her in her beautiful surroundings and I will personally think of her every time that I fill my bird feeders. She was especially fond of all her feathered friends and special visitors from nature. She loved you all so much. Aunt Doris has left us, but our special memories will always hold her dear to us all. We regret not being able to attend the Memorial Service tomorrow, but please know that we will be with you all in our hearts.
    Much Love from Ed and Debbie Marriott, Candace, Chet, Sophie and Nolan Aspinall, Tanya Egli, Ryan and Julian Corbett, George Marchbank, Roy and Coreena Marchbank
