Always Smiling

Sorry for your loss.  Doris sure did love BINGO and I remember attending Bingo with Doris and Judy many times just down the street from her home on Walnut Street. Also spent many Sunday’s traveling to Trexlertown visiting Doris’s parents with her and Judy and Sandy.   Always a fun adventure with Doris, especially our trip to California the four of us (Doris, my mom Joanne, and Doris’s sister) visiting Bob when he lived in California many many years ago!
