  • Doris was the person that made you want to try harder to be a better person. For many years she would mail out Birthday, Anniversary, even Get Well Cards for Alum Creek Church. She invited her Son and Family to live in her home when he returned home from Germany in a wheel chair. I remember taking her out to just look at Christmas Lights, oh how she loved them. But what I remember most was watching her with the children after Church on Sunday mornings. They would circle her wheel chair and she would hand out candy to each one. Making little comments about there outfits or a ribbon in there hair. Always something to make each child fell special. Doris I will miss you and your beautiful smile but God has granted your wish of many years. You are in Heaven running, walking and taking with Frankie and the rest of your family.
