  5. Doss, you were my absolutely best friend EVER! We two were so close and shared everything and oh, how I miss talking with you now. I told you things I could tell no one else because I knew you loved me and my family as much as you loved yours and you would take my faults and problems to God for me. I WILL NEVER EVER FORGET YOU !! Many times these past 6 years I’ve told Jim I wish Doss was here …you would know what to do or you would have an answer to something I couldn’t remember. I could always call you and ask “who was….or what was…?” and you could give me a quick answer. I’ve never known a woman that loved like you did and never ever had a bad word to say. You raised 8 children and helped with my 2 with a crippled leg and never an abundance of money. My children didn’t have a granny and so you became one for them. I LOVE YOU MORE THAN WORDS CAN EVER EXPRESS LOVE….I KNOW YOU ARE IN HEAVEN WITH JESUS AND I THANK GOD YOU SUFFER NO MORE. Someday I will see you, my dear friend, again and we will walk together on streets of gold.
