Doris Cooley IS a brilliant Star in the universe. In this life she endured grievous injustices that should never happen to a child. These injustices will continue to perpetuate unless EVERYONE makes an effort to educate themselves and vow to make this world a better place. Doris' daughter Alice Stoneman is a Saint of God who dedicated her life to making a negative into a positive. Beause of her, Doris left this planet knowing that YES, THERE IS LOVE. Doris' friend, Lorraine

I always think of Doris as one of those happy people, full of bear hugs and sloppy kisses! She was just a plain old kind lady. Bon Voyage......

As A little girl I lived in the first house behind the Rockaway drugstore with my grandparents. Doris was such a nice lady, always a smile and wave when you saw her. I remember once when I crashed on my bike in the alley between the store & my house she came over & helped me home after wiping my tears, & making sure I was OK. I'll never forget that. I'm truly sorry for your loss but our memories of her will live on in our hearts.

Ultimately for me any thoughts of Doris must always settle on forgiveness and on the notion that in this world there is no room for prolonged resentment.....I wish Doris well in the afterlife and my sincere condolences go out to Alice......
