Your dear Mother is finally at peace and with her beloved Jim. I have many wonderful memories of Aunt Doris. Her sharp wit being at the top of the list! Aunt Doris was a great conversationalist and I loved visiting with her. She had a distinctive voice. Aunt Doris always had something clever and amusing to say and we hit it off splendidly! I loved visiting your home in Calgary with the grand piano and regal “Sugar” trotting around. Her wit and humour lives on in her family. May she Rest In Peace, sincerely, Donna Jean

John, Barb, and Lisa,

I was just thinking of Doris last week and was very saddened to hear her passing. As they say, it takes a village to raise a child I remember the many, many fun times at the Raleigh household growing up. She was a wonderful woman an will be missed. Rest in peace.
