Sorry for your loss! Our thoughts and prayers are with family and friends. Special memories come to my mind because Doris Kay was so nice to my Mother, Thelma Murphy..
Doris Kay was a cousin on my Dad’s side of the family and I regret we are not able to attend the service.

She was one of the sweetest teachers I ever had. She taught me so much. I still to this day 30 plus years later have the graduation gift she gave me. Prayers to the family.
