My mom is a very special person to me and will never be forgotten. I think of her everyday and the conversations we had. At night the boys want to call and say good night XOXOXOXOXOX. I still can't believe that she has moved on and is now an guardian angel looking over all of us that were part of her life. She is in heaven with her parents, her brother and nephew. You will be forever missed Mom!

I have so many happy memories of my Aunt Doris. As a child, I loved to visit her, my Uncle Bob and my cousins for family summer vacations and Thanksgivings. We always had lots of laughs and good times. On our day trips through the mountains, she would sing songs with us kids and drive my dad (her brother) and Uncle Bob crazy. We still talk about the time she wanted to know if we could have a picnic on the top of Mt. Washington and was told that the winds were about 40mph and the temperature was in the 30's. She was disappointed and I think she was hoping that when we reached the summit, it wouldn't be that bad and we could have our picnic, but we ended up eating our lunch when we made it back down the auto road. My memories grew even more when I got married and Rich and I took Ryan and Shelby to NH. Aunt Doris always doted on them and they loved it when she'd go on day trips with us to Clark's, Six Gun City, Storyland, and many other attractions. Aunt Doris and I had many long talks over the years. I know that she enjoyed being a "snowbird" and spending time in FL with Uncle Bob. She loved her family more than anything and always talked about her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was kind, loving, generous and funny and I'll miss her dearly, but I know that she is now at peace. Rest easy, Aunt Doris. You'll always be in my heart. Until we meet again, Karen xoxo
