I just wanted to ask all of our friends to keep Scott & I and my family in your prayers. My grandma, Doris passed away on the 14th in the afternoon at her home. I was very close to my grandma and she was a special person to so many. She was a very faithful woman who loved God and was a wonderful servant to him. She taught me so much. She loved to have a good time, she was very outgoing, loved to play bingo and 500 rummy. She never knew a stranger. I will miss her laugh and all of the good heart to heart talks that we shared about life, love and and everything in between. She helped me alot throughout my life and was great rock. She will be missed greatly.
