She Was Pure Sunshine




Doris June Forsythe

January 4, 1931 - April 2, 2015


Over the last month, we had the profound experience of caring for Jamaica's grandmother, Doris June, as she made her transition from this Earth. Cancer went mis/undiagnosed and by the time she received an official diagnosis, it had spread into her lymphatic system and spine...hospice arrived that same day.
For 22 days we were able to care for her and tell her how much we love her- although short, we appreciate that time and opportunity. She was pure sunshine and joy to all who knew her and she will be deeply missed. 
Many thanks to our buddy, Stephen, at Star of Texas Casket Company for collaborating with us on her sentimental and personalized Cedar casket. It was beautiful and we know she would have loved the special touches carved into it for her. Rest in peace, sweet Doie, your legacy of love, faith and laughter lives on in your children, grand and great.
