I remember spending the night with Doris & Barney when I was in college. One night in particular, Barney was gone, and Doris and I talked into the night like a couple of teenagers--I was, she wasn't, but it didn't matter. She was a wonderful lady, and I hope it comforts you to know that so many people loved her. She now has eternal joy with God.
