Saw that Doris passed away and wanted to extend our sympathy to the family. We didn't know her immediate family but knew the McDougall family from Argyle. Jack worked with Doris at the Insurance Company many years ago. I grew up in Argyle so knew the family very well. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time.
