    Miss Doris,
    I feel like I've loss one of my closest friends, even though I never met you. I learned about you and your life through the eyes and stories of your daughter Sara and niece, Amanda. They brought you to life and made me feel like I really missed out by not ever having the chance to meet you. May God Bless and keep you, may he shine his holy light upon you and I know his Angels will be there for you in your new life.
