So sorry to hear of Doris's passing. We were friends for many years. I remember when we had rummage sales for Beth Israel on Baltimore St. We had some great times together over the years. She was a very sweet lady. May she rest in peace.

I grew up in Lynne Acres when neighborhoods were like families. The entire Block family were wonderful neighbors, friends, and family. I miss those times and the Blocks.
