Doris Hood Memorial ScholarshopDoris HoodDoris Hood, More than Special

A kinder soul you will never meet

Gentle, loving, forever sweet

A special friend, a heart so true

Always knowing just what to do

If a tear you shed, she would wipe it away

If you were down, she would brighten your day

If you were scared, she’d calm your fear

If you needed a friend, she would always be there

A total giver of everything good

Giving her all as only she could

One of a kind in every way known

Her caring nature would always be shown

Two or four legged, stranger or friend

Doris would help you, her hand she would lend

Whatever it was that you needed to do

Her huge heart of gold would help you get through

How can it be that our angel is gone?

We need her with us so we can go on

Goodbye my dear friend though we part for a while

In my heart I hold close your beautiful smile

I will watch for your spirit it will be here I know

And when it’s most needed is when it will show

And until that sweet day when we meet once again

I will honor your memory, my dear special friend
