My Deepest Condolences to Doris's Family, she was a truly wonderful lady who I will remember for filling the Milton Home with the beautiful sounds of music. I had the pleasure of meeting Doris when my Dad was a resident of Milton Home, and remember many times when my Mom and I visited my Dad not only hearing Doris playing the organ, but also the sound of her laughter and her sweet smile. I am sure that Doris is now filling the Heavens with music, playing bingo and visiting with the many friends she made through her life and those she met at Milton Home who went home before her. God Bless You Doris and may you forever be an Angel.
