  7. Doris was a kind and generous person. She always had time for her ittle annoying cousins and patience for the adults the grew up to be. She was funny and found joy in life. I never heard her say a demeaning thing about another person. Reading others comments reinforces the fact that she was a good friend, aunt, cousin, and colleague.

    God speed.
