  • Doris will be missed. Even though she may not have felt well, she did not like to miss services. We wanted the best for her – even though we are sad for ourselves because she is gone; we need to be happy for her – that she has been made whole and is not suffering any longer. Please accept our condolences. You have been a wonderful example, Rich, of a faithful husband. Love to your family.

  • There are no words that truly express how sad we feel the loss of our good friend. We celebrate her new life in Heaven , no longer suffering as she did while on earth….. ’till we meet again. Sincere sympathy to Rich and family.

  • I was just back in Mt. Vernon for a short visit when I read about Doris’s passing. I will keep the family in my prayers. Doris was a wonderful person. This has brought back many wonderful memories, especially being neighbors and in church youth group together. I guess that was 55 years ago.
