    Doris was a beautiful lady and showed love to everyone. I was her nurse for two years and she brought sunshine into my day everyday. I loved her dearly and she will be missed. Pat Gebhard, her right arm buddy will miss her dearly.
    You were truly blessed to have such a wonderful mother. Cherish your memories. I’m so glad I had my picture taken with her and Pat.

    I loved talking to Doris when I was working at Markesan. We talked about the old days in Brandon, while I was giving her a manicure. Her friend Pat will surely miss her and I will miss her dearly.
