After 95 years on this earth, Doris finally got her wings. She lived a good long life. She was ready, but selfishly We weren’t. If you knew Doris, you know how faithful she was to the Lord. She was devoted to her church Centenary UM Church. Even after she couldn’t attend service anymore, she was still a faithful member! See Doris was never concerned with worldly things. She knew this was just a temporary life here on earth. She’s been preparing herself for this day most of her life! She never complained about anything, she was always thankful, just for the little things. Her favorite line was “Count your blessings”. We will miss her so very much, but we will rejoice, and try not be sad. For we know when she made it to Heaven, Her Master said “Well done my good and faithful servant!!” Thank you Jesus!! You got your wings... now rest peacefully my love. 

Please keep my family in your prayers, especially her daughter Janis.
