Just want to share my thoughts & prayers to all the family and friends of Doris. I was blessed to have Mrs. Higgy as my Godmother, but I know she created so many special bonds with everyone she interacted with. Her laugh was infectious, her eyes sparkled when she smiled, and her hugs always made you feel loved and secure. I remember our family cookouts as neighbors that allowed both of our families to share such great moments...clam bakes, horseshoes, volleyball, and getting thrown around the pool by Paul, Frank, & Tom! She shared her heart and warmth with all! And it's amazing to see how the entire family reflects the spirit and grace that Doris possessed...she made generations of very special people! Thank you Mrs. Higgy for being an angel to us all! Love you always!
