My condolences to the family. I am sure this beautiful lady touched my life when my father was her pastor, and I was just a baby. My prayers for comfort, peace, and the joy of memories her life brought to her family, her church and community, and the world.

Mabel, I just looked at the Montgomery Herald and saw Doris's obituary. She was a special lady and I always enjoyed talking her when she was at Evan's Rest Home. Remember her in younger days from cafeteria and when you and I worked for Dr. Andrews. Will be praying for you and your family. Would love to see you.
