  1. I am so sorry I was not able to attend Doris’s services today. Doris was the kindest person I have ever met, not that she wasn’t capable of showing an ornery streak every once in a while! Even after she retired from NWTH there were a few of us who would have lunch together every few months but it has been a few years. One of my co-workers was able to attend the service and she said that she learned Doris had been living with a daughter because of health problems. She was a beautiful lady through and through and always so elegant looking no matter what she wore. Take some time to remember the good times and the funny things you shared that will help you now.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. If I can be of help in any way please do not hesitate to call, 806-290-8882. I pray God’s perfect peace embrace each one you.
