I am another MASH Class of 1960 classmate, originally from Vernon Township, who lived with my family (from our births - both in 1942) in my family’s home along Murray Road until mid-1948, while you and your sister, Leona, and your family, lived along US 19/322.  Our back lawns were nearly adjacent.  Although my family moved to West Mead Township in mid-1948, you and Leona were my very first close childhood and neighborhood friends. 

May our good Lord bless your family that remains, and may you forever rest in peace.

I knew Doris from grade school days.  We had many good times and enjoyed our sleep overs when stayed awake talking and laughing.  She was a fun friend.
