I have nothing but good memories of doris. She was always kind and loving to me. I often thought about her because i moved to florida, and didnt know if she was still in ellenville. She was a gentle soul who always tried cheering me up at work. She would sing" open up the door and let the sun shine in" to me if i was down. Prayers and peace to her family.
