I’m so sorry for ur loss. Doris was one of the kindest most gentle person I’ve known. This world has certainly lost a gem. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone.

Ron and I were good friends of Doris and John for many years while living in Fl. Doris and I played golf together with the nine holers at Boca Royale and attended many events together while we were members at the club. The four of us spent leisure time together be it the movies or going out to dinner. We always looked forward to seeing them each year during the winter months. They say you are blessed to have just one good friend in your lifetime but Ron and I were
blessed with two and we will always keep them in our thoughts and prayers.
Memories are treasures to have for a lifetime and Doris and John are two of the treasures.
