Willie, I am so sorry to hear about Doris, but I heard from Mark Russell that her faith continued thru horrific pain. Praise God for her example! When I worked at Shults-lewis, and you did the garden for the kids ( for years..thank you). Doris made quilts for the yearly auction, and I own two (one is still on my bed everyday). SERVANTS to be your glory to GOD. Thank you, Willie; thank you, Doris. Love, -Deb Magurean
