Dear Denise and Ed,
I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Doris will be missed by a great many people in our community. She was the first person i met when i worked at my first Catskill hotel job, at Rubin's, in 1973, when she welcomed me to the hotel and to Kerhonkson as the switchboard operator. i've always appreicated her sense of community, as she was a willing and able volunteer to so many causes. I will always think of her fondly, and I also remember the joy she had when she talked about her family.

My deepest sympathy to Ed and the family. I loved my friend Doris. I was always in awe of how dedicated she was to her family and the town. I doubt there is an organization that she didn't volunteer for and give 110% to. Working with her on the Kerhonkson/Accord Chamber Of Commerce Board and its activities she taught me so much and we had so much fun doing it together. I know she's organizing Heaven now, our loss and Heaven's gain. God Bless you all, Doris will stay forever in my heart.
