    Doris & Johnny allowed their daughter Kim to have a slumber party for about a dozen screeching, giggling girls when I was around 10 or 11. My first sleepover & I was delighted & terrified. I was also terribly homesick even though my parents were only a block away 😉 Doris kept her eye on me & would comfort me when I was getting tearful. But the HIGHLIGHT of the evening was during a lull in the party Doris got behind her organ & began belting out some tunes. We girls were delighted!! Our Mom's couldn't do cool stuff like that!! Doris is the only real memory of my first big sleepover! Her lively personality & kindness will be very missed.
