DORIS BOGGS: Serving up more than just cookies

January 27, 2012

Doris Boggs had to wait awhile for her interview. Illness, a crazy start to the New Year, and a death in my family kept postponing our time together.
In typical Doris fashion, when I called to reschedule…again…she said, “I was just praying and thinking about your family and the funeral ALL DAY during that awful weather.”
It felt wonderful to know Doris had been praying…but I was not surprised.
Doris was gracious, as usual, as she ushered me past her husband, Bob, and into the dining room area of her home. Bob and Doris have hung around together for a long time—65 years to be exact.
