Doris, as I sit here writing notes to family members, memories of our times together come flooding back. We loved you and will miss you. We still can’t believe your are gone .You made me a sister-in-law almost 49 tears ago. I may not belong to the Busy Bees, but we did have a sisterhood ” Wives of the Snyder men”. Forever in our hearts.

We lost you so quickly and will miss you and your stories at our Busy Bee luncheons. 40 years once every month we shared our joys, love, and heartaches. Hug Cindy for us and know that your memory will always be with us. Sisters by choice, not birth. How blessed we all were to be friends from 1st grade till Heaven. All my love.
