My deepest condolences to Mr Lee and Calvary Baptist family. Mrs. Doris touched many lives and was always a huge ray of sunshine, smiling at every corner she turned. I am truly saddened she is no longer with us, but rejoicing she is home with our Lord. Rest easy and fly high. Give my granddaddy a big hug for me.

Aunt Doris, Still your presence lingers, I recall with fondness your gentle hand that brushed my hair as a little girl. Most of all I will never forget that compassionate look in your eyes, I may have lost an Aunt here on earth, but gained an angel in heaven to watch over me, Love is all there is.

Our Aunt Doris was a true sweetheart … to know her was to LOVE HER! She was a kind person and I enjoyed visiting her very much over the years. She loved coming to North Carolina and visiting NC family. She had a sweet sweet smile and a laugh I will always remember. She will be missed but God knows best and she lived a long life. GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN
