    Precious memories of dear Miss Doan will be forever embedded in my mind. Loved this amazingly kind, interesting, intelligent, remarkable lady! Not only do I miss her presence for myself, but also for my sister and best friend, Ty Hart, who loved Miss Doan dearly. Lue Cole

    Anyone who knows me knows that Miss DOAN and I were special friends. I will always cherish the memories of all the good times we had together. Due to her living in Lancaster, we didn’t get to see each as often as we wished. However, we kept in touch almost daily.. What a great friend to everyone who knew her!
