Enjoyed sharing an office and working with Doris at Stone & Thomas. I still wear the pearl ring she gave to me just because she wanted me to have it. She was always thinking about others. Praying for God’s comfort and peace to be with you during this difficult time.

Your Mother gave me my first job at Stone and Thomas which led to a very established career in the retail industry in Human Resources for many years. I have many fond memories of your Mother and know first hand the number of lives that she touched over the years. May you all have peace in your hearts.
