My heart goes out to all my family and to all whose lives that were touched by my stepmom, Doris. I am very thankful to her for helping share Christ with me as a child. I don’t know where my life would have ended up, spiritually, without her Christian influence.
❤️✝️❤️ I wish I could have told her that one more time and could have told her I loved her one last time, but she had already transitioned to Heaven by the time I found out she was gone. 😢💔
I love you, Doris, and I’ll see you soon,
~~Your stepdaughter, Vicki
