Here's To You, Aunt Doris!!


Doris & Dan

Manny, Doris & Edward


Doris Friedman
December 7, 1922-March 20, 2010

I quote from her son, Dan, 'She went the distance in the most graceful and heroic way possible. And left on her own terms. Right on Mom.'

Doris passed away, peacefully, in her sleep on March 20. Jimmy, Edward and I will never forget your kindness and unconditional love and will hold the friendship we shared close in our hearts forever. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Dan and Sally, Irene, Becca and Dana.

Here's to YOU, Aunt Doris!

Oh Jennie, like w/ Heather, and Ms. Muse who posted below you, I received all the hugs, happily from you and Princess Cupcake... thank you so much!!!..she and her husband were the best...and so, they live on in the lives of their children and grandchildren...

Ms. Muse, I have the best image of Doris in my head..we would visit them in Long Beach during the summers, from the time Edward was an infant, and I will never forget the abandon w/ which Doris played in the ocean...singing praises w/ great freedom!!!
