So sorry to hear about Doris. She was a very special lady. Our families were neighbors when they lived on Orchard and we lived on Baker. I remember good memories of my mom and dad going out to eat with your mom and dad. We just lost my mom last year and I know how tough it can be. May your memories be filled with happiness to get you through these hard times.

I am so sorry to hear of Doris's passing. We were neighbors on Fair Ave. for several years. I am so glad Doris stayed in contact with my parents, Harry Sr. and Evelyn Shaw until their deaths. My heart goes out to all of your family. You boys were very dear to my heart.
