Our dear sweet mother, Doris Thomasson Brown, age 91, of Durham NC, passed away Thursday evening, the 6th of February, while holding her hand. She blessed us so very much throughout our lives. We are so very grateful that she is now in the hands of our Lord. She was an angel who blessed so many people with her gentle and kind heart. Never once did we hear her complain about anything over the years. Yes, she had some hard times too, yet in all situations, you truly could see Christ when you looked at her, as she loved us all well; her three boys, our father and everyone around her, through all her many years. Great and most precious memories are pouring through our minds as we think about the life that she lived as she showed each of us the true nature of the Lord. We will miss her so very much, yet we rejoice to know that she is with our Heavenly Father. She inspired us every day to keep looking up. Well mom, we will keep looking up because you showed us what Christ was all about. Thank you, our dear sweet mother, for being our mom. We could not be more blessed.
