Guestbook

I will miss Doris very much. Although I met her in her later years through working at Sound of the Scissors, I always enjoyed shampooing her hair. I knew she had a good heart and loved her family and would always take care of those she loved. She was always kind to me and made sure that I got my strawberries and pumpkins each year. God Bless all of you for being so devoted and caring towards her. Thanks for the memories....
