    First of all my condolences go out to Doris’s family, I was sad to read about her passing. I remember Doris from many years ago when she worked at Bichler Gravel & Concrete. My father was employed there also so that is how I knew her. She was was such a sweet lady and always had a kind word when I would stop by there. She was a very thoughtful caring person. I missed her when she left Bichlers and haven’t seen her since but I remember her stopping by our house once to see my parents around that time. Thats just how she was.
    You may have lost a Great Lady but God has gained a Great Angel, she will always be with you.
