    She was one of my very favorite aunts! I loved staying at her house during school vacation. She was there for me when my parents had the crazy idea to move me from all my friend and roots, in my senior year of high school, from Boston suburbs to the sticks & confinement of Dunstable! Her house was my escape, I always felt welcome and loved, she even taught me to sew. She was the best and her home was also my safe haven. I loved very much and will never forget her and her gentle kindness. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Aunt Doris!!
