    Doris was a long term member of our Tops chapter and we always missed her at our meetings. We were talking about her tonight and remembering all the. good times with her. We are having our picnic in a few weeks and I remember she always brought a salad that I lovedâ€"orange jello with pineapple and green olives. My sympathy and prayers go out to your family at your loss.

    What a wonderful memory I carry with me on long summer days walking across the lawn going to see Margaret and hearing all the wonderful piano music escaping to outside through open doors and window, always happy upbeat tunes, some ragtime, musical numbers, but always always made visiting a complete pleasure...I will miss Mrs. Minet.

    Sadness will rule the near future but rest assured that a life which has been well lived and well loved, such as hers, is cause for celebration.  Her legacy will live on in her children and their children and so on, but her continued gift is the love that knows no end.  May you find comfort in sharing stories of her life, cooking her recipes and singing the songs she played on the piano.  When you miss her, sit quietly and listen to her voice as it beats steadily inside you and rejoice in her love.
