Been there Done that was one of her favorite sayings. She will be missed by so many. That laugh of hers could be recognized as soon as you heard it. She is with many of her family members that have gone before her and they are having a great time and I know she is finally able to dance with out hurting!! I will say that I always knew where I stood with her and I appeciated that. I'm glad I was able to visit with her and that her Great Grandson Calvin was able to spend some qualilty time as well. Until we meet again. Peace be with you Doris!!!!

Rest in piece Doris.  You will be missed by so many people.  You taught me how to cook my very first turkey, and so much more.  Now you can rest with Johnson again.  God Bless!
