    I never heard my Mom say a negative word about anyone. She saw the “good” in people, always uplifting and offering words of encouragement. She never judged, and loved everyone unconditionally. The true love of Christ was exhibited continually through my Mom. I will miss her, but knowing where she is, and knowing we will be reunited with her some day gives me great peace. I love you Mom!

  2. Shirley miller says:

    When I was a little girl I remember how aunt Doris would smile and how beautiful she was . She would say to me Shirley you are such a blessing. When my daddy passed a way I was a teenager and she and uncle Arlisse were my rock. They had so much influence on my life. I will see her and my precious daddy and momma agin someday. Rest In Peace aunt Doris!

    May God richly place His loving arms around the family as you grieve the lost of Doris. Her quiet spirit has always left a deep impression as I was her pastor for 10 years in Panama City, FL. I trust that the family will find the perfect peace that only Christ can provide in the days ahead.

    I never think of Mrs. Doris without seeing her beautiful smile. She was truly interested in others and made all feel welcome and at ease. She lived a beautiful example of God’s love and grace.
