Love and prayers to all of Doris’ family. Her smile lit up the room and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her at Cruise Holidays. She was like a second mom to me, and so many of us. She had such a kind, sweet heart and spirit. I will miss her greatly.

My prayers for the family of miss Doris. I was blessed with the opportunity to meet her through her daughter Carole. She was a sweet and kind lady who brought a smile to the face of those she was around. I know she will be greatly missed.

I will miss you Ms. Doris Forrest! You had a heart of gold and a soul to please others! I will never forget the love you had for your daughter JoAnne and the friendship you both had. The times you were inseparable, with her! Our holidays will not be the same without you, but we know your spirit is with us all! I’ve never have seen a daughter love her mother the way she did, or a mother love and depend on a daughter like her!! You both taught me many things! The relationship you had with Jaime (granddaughter), you referred many times as your soulmate who adored and loved you who never left your side! In our hearts we all know the love and fun we had together! Now your immediate family tonight sits and reminisce’s the beautiful times shared with you! We love you!

Doris was a blessing to all who had the good fortune to know her. Her positive spirit warmed hearts and her bright smile was infectious. I loved the chats we had over the years. She took great pride in her family, whom are ALL in my prayers. I know they, and I, will treasure our happy memories of such a very special lady.
