    To the whole family of Doris, it just does not seem possible that God would take her away from her fun-filled happy life. She kept all of us wondering what would be the next thing on Facebook that she was involved in. I knew Doris almost all of her life, living in the area and being in 4-H and our brothers were so close too-especially John whom God called home on the same day. Heaven has added two wonderful people. My deepest sympathy.
