  4. I am so sorry to hear about your huge loss! She taught me to say three instead of free when I was in the family room watching TV at the tender age of three.

    The door was always open on Rosery Drive to all the kids.

    I cannot be at the funeral on Friday, but I will be thinking of you all. Hugs to you all! Lori xo

    Dear Don, Ron and Aunt Anne called to tell me of Doris’ passing. I am so sorry. I remember many years ago, sitting in Mom and Dad’s living room and getting to see each other for the first time in so many years. You two were so special in helping get Ron through those difficult years when they went up North. Much love to you and your family, Joy

You two were so special in helping get Ron through those difficult years when they went up North.
    Much love to you and your family, Joy

    My heartfelt condolences. I wanted to let you know how special your Mom was to me. My memories of her are always welcoming me (and anyone who just happened to drop by) into your house when we were young and having such a great sense of humor and always such kindness. After all the years that have passed, my memory of her is strong. With my deepest sympathy, may memories comfort you and bring you peace during this difficult time.
