    She will be missed. She always reminded me of when we use to ring your doorbell and run. Especially, when your dad was waiting for us and caught us. Scared the daylights out of us. I have many fond memories. Your family is in my prayers. Sending hugs.

    Please know how very sorry Ron and I are that we cannot be with you at services today, as we are home ill and had plans to attend. Doris was a very special Lady, a treasured member of our church! We always had the best conversations, and we treasure our memories of spending time with her, and especially this Hines family. We were so looking forward to seeing the Hines families today, but instead please know we send our Love, and pray that her beautiful memory will bring Peace and Comfort to all. Our Love, Susie and Ron Trees, Frankfort

    So sorry for your loss. She was a special lady… always reminding me that Doug could not say Sharon when he was little, so I was always Haron.

    Dear family, Pete and I are sorry for your loss. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. We have fond memories not only of her as a member of our church but also from a long time ago as square dancers. I hope she is smiling and dancing in heaven.
