To Rev. Jim & family, please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss. I only knew Doris a short time, and saw immediately a kind & understanding person, with a lot of spark & humour thrown in. My only wish is to have known her earlier. My thoughts & prayers are with you.

It is with great sadness that I'm reading this, but I know that she is reunited with my nan (Helen) who worked for Doris and Jim when I was a child. I have so many fond memories, and think of them often. Thinking of her family at this difficult time.
