Mrs. Kennedy was just like a grandma to me and my siblings. We moved in next door to her when I was in 1st grade an my lil sis was only 18 months old - a few years later our little brother was born and Mrs. Kennedy was there. We played at her house and in her yard as she watched on and always had a hug and a cookie waiting for us. As we grew up I was honored to have as a part of my Wedding, honored as a Grandparent and my lil sis named her first child, Kennadi, in honor of Mrs. Kennedy. She was the greatest neighbor anyone could ask for and more than that she was member of our family! We have so many great memories that include Mrs. Kennedy! She is finally in heaven with her husband and she will be greatly missed here on earth - but we know that she is in a much better place - and we are lucky to have such a wonderful angel watching over us.

Doris was such a special person who became included as a member of our family after being best friends with my aunt Mary Frances Clark for many many years. She never missed any gatherings we had and especially loved being together with us and loved watching all the kids. How awesome I thought it was when I was in grade school at Lincoln School and to know the head cook there so well. Doris had learned to paint beautiful china from my aunt and they enjoyed it so much. She absolutely loved spending a week at my grandmas house in Beverly during Christmas since that was the area she grew up in. Doris was so much fun to visit with and was always intersted in what everyone had been doing. She will be greatly missed by our family but now she is reunited w/ her parents, husband, sister, and my Aunt Frances!!
