Doris was a very happy, singing, and clapping person. I remember watching her with her children having a grand time. I made sure many years ago to get her carrot cake recipe and it is still my go to recipe for that.
Your Mom was a lot of fun and a very good cook. She gave us a wonderful Niece and Nephew which we all love dearly. I loved her carrot cake!!
