    My condolences to Dewey, Donald and David. Growing up in Drakes Branch, and spending so much time with Donald and David, Doris (and Dewy) both played an instrumental part of my early life. Every day during elementary school, I would walk to their house, often get served breakfast, and then join Donald and David on our walk to school. Seems like everyday and mostly every weekend I spent time at Doris and Dewey’s. They were second parents to me, often transporting me to ballgames, local events and various school functions. I miss those early days and will forever be grateful to the extreme care Doris provided to me, and my brother Cliff during our early years. Donald, David and Dewey, I love you and am sorry for your loss. Rest In Peace Doris….
