Hard to put into worrds, the loss is difficult to accept. Doris was a VERY special friend, volunteer & "Grandmommy" to many. Will always cherish the beach moments while the kids were in sailing & swimming lessons, Tuesday Nights on the porch, travel to Junior regattas, hours on Race Committee, and so many more memories ALL GOOD! Love to all!
