“I am very sorry to hear about Doris' passing. Doris was always there and I never thought about her dying. Crazy, I know. I will miss her at the family reunions. I was glad I was able to see her at Bernadine's wedding this summer. I cannot be there because I have to be at the Mayo Clinic Wednesday and Thursday. I have stage 1, grade 1, breast cancer and I am having pre op tests for whenever they do surgery. I will say a prayer.”
