Joe, as you know DA and I have known each other since you lived in Wichita, KS many years ago. We started out as two strong women marking our territory and ended up best friends for decades. She was always my confident, a teacher, a trusted insurance broker and whenever possible shopping partners. I know your grief is overwhelming right now; but know that she loved you very much and she wanted you to move on once she passed and live the rest of your life filled with love and happiness with her blessing. She was a very special lady who wanted only the best for everyone she knew. She will be missed by many people but none more than me.

Dear Joe, the sad news has belatedly reached me from a working colleague from my days at CTH Aviation in Memphis. Doris Ann was a friend and a stalwart woman back in the early 70’s in a field dominated by men. I’m sorry to learn of her death and the fact that we are so near you both and was unaware. Doris Ann later visited me in Kansas City when I went to work for Marsh. We were Beech Aircraft brokers. We shared a lot of mutual friends in our business and again, we’ve lost some early giants in this wacky business and I’m sure Doris Ann remained true to her life calling when we were young and happy together at CTH Aviation in Memphis so long ago. May she Rest in Peace and I’m so happy you both had 42 years together. - Charlie Tooley
