    Prayers for the family. Doris was my Mom’s (Florence Bouvia) best friend and she will be missed. Praise God that we got to visit with her on Thanksgiving Day. She was a great lady and a wonderful friend. Many hours were spent playing Skipbo by my Mom and Doris. I was so glad to meet her son, Paul, and see that she was well taken care of always. The Good Lord has another angel in heaven.
