    Doris’s Relatives and Friends,
    Our friendship started eight years ago when I entered the Mennonite Home and became Doris’s roommate.
    We went to a few activities together, including the monthly Birthday Party. Weeknights we watched “Wheel of Fortune” and “Jeopardy;’ Saturday was “Lawrence Welk” night.
    Oh, who couldn’t love a cute “little old lady” (her phrase) named Doris Smith!
    With sympathy and best wishes,
