    I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Doris. Grew up in the same neighborhood with her kids and I was always treated special like I was part of the family. Hurts to know she is gone. Boogie,Bonnie, Timmy and Sug-I am thinking of you all.
    with love,

    We were shocked to hear of Doris’s passing. I knew she had health problems in the past but we thought she had grown stronger.
    Even though we had not seen Boogie and Doris in a while, it didn’t mean we loved them any less. We had a past together that has spanned many years and shared many good times that we will never forget. I am so sorry Shug, Bonnie and Timmy and I know how close you were to your Mom but she will always live on in your hearts.
    Boogie, if you need anything, feel free to call and let us know of any services or gatherings in her memory. Take care and find comfort in knowing she is with our Lord Jesus Christ.
    With lots of Love,
    The Riddicks
