I have known Doris nearly all my life and admired and respected her greatly. She will be sorely missed in her church and community. All my sincerest sympathies goes to the family.

I found Doris to be a wonderful, gentle Christian woman. She was kind, generous and until the very end, a dynamo of activity which she lavished on her family, friends and the less fortunate. I will miss her ready smile, her heartfelt hugs and her unending kindness. She is the epitome of a life well lived. Doris, rest in peace.

Mrs.McFarland was a sweet loving lady. I helped my stepson cut her grass and she was always so nice. She will surely be missed and my prayers are with her family.
