Family of Doris, Doris was such a good room mate of mom(Lois McDaniel) at the Brady Home and we loved getting to know her and listening to her story. God bless Doris and her family at this time of our loss. She made her mark on this world and I am sure she will in her new home with her creator. My thoughts are with you, Joyce McDaniel Arndt

Coleen, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We only know too well the grief of losing someone so very close to our hearts. Our prayer is when your Mom took her last breath on Earth, she took her first breath in Heaven.
