    Don, you may not remember Joanie and I from FBC in MJ. We had the pleasure of working in the youth department with Doris and we had many fun times with her. I was not aware until now that she entered the presence of our LORD!!!!! I know you will miss her (as will many others) but know that she is rejoicing with the saints.
  3. Gilbert & Brenda Donaldson says:
    Don, Dwayne, Denise, & Deshae: We are so saddened to hear our dear friend had past away. We were blest 30+ years ago to meet this wonderful family. We have so many great memories of spending every New Years Eve with 8 couples and our children, even some 4th of Julies. Time and age change routines but friendship never changes. We dearly loved Doris, such a sweet lady and gave all of us great laughs. These memories and friendship will always remain. Our hearts go out to each of you and praying that God will put his loving arms around each of you and comfort you today and days ahead. Doris, Thanks for a lot of good memories and lots of fun and laughter. Enjoy your journey and until we meet again We love you so much. Gilbert & Brenda
