A great mother in law. She managed to be with us for the birth of all 3 of our boys. I remember our trip to Devil's Tower and how much she enjoyed it. We used to go visit her when she lived in the Towers in Douglas. She would go out of her way to help you. Wish I had been able to get out there to see her one more time. When I think of the proverbs 31 women she comes to mind. Proverbs 31:28 Her children rise up and call her blessed. You will truly be missed by everyone who knew you. Rest easy with Jesus. Well done good and faithful servant.

Oh sweet Doris. I feel honored to have been able to work on your hair and nails. You were a blessing in my life and I will cherish those memories always. You were the definition of true beauty and you proved my point that sometimes a lady just needs her hair and nails done to change your whole day. Your smile after a hair appointment could light a room. Rest easy sweet Doris. Much love to all her family.
