We could never find the words to express how blessed we have been to not only known Doris and the Lyon's family for mor than 20 years, but the ultimate gift of being welcomed as part of their beauridul family from the moment we met. We cannot express deep enough gratitude for knowing Doris & John would never let an opporrunity go by to extend love to our children, to show up in times of need no matter how large or small, and to welcome us to the best fresh brook trout breakfast ever served over a wood camp fire. Doris' presence will be missed more than we can ever say and our only hope that in any small way, our love and prayers can offer some small comfort to our grieving family. We love you all and no time or distance can keep us from holding you all so dearly in our hearts. With all of our love, the Boerner Family; Andrea, Rob, Jeff, Ashley, and Maxwell (who will sorely miss his sneaky campfire snacks.)
Andrea, Robert, Jeffrey & Ashley Boerner
