    It was such a blessing that Great Aunt Doris sent me a birthday card this past summer. She was like a second Grandma to me. She was so special. The fact that she came all the way to Lemars, Iowa to see me get married was the greatest gift I received that whole weekend. I cherished her presence at every family reunion that we got together to spend time and make memories. When Grandma Tim went to the heavens, I missed her so much. Whenever I saw Great Aunt Doris, it was like seeing Grandma Tim. To me it was like extra time that I got to see her. I will miss you so much. Until we meet again.
    I love you,

    A very nice obituary and picture for an amazingly strong woman who could paint, yodel and be the glue to hold a huge family together. She will be missed but remembered. She was a role model to all. Remember who she was and all she did and “pay it forward!”
