  1. Dear Mary Jane and All,

    The whole Woods clan has been special to me ever since Norvella married into the family in 1963. You are very much in our thoughts.

    May it help to know your grief is shared by everyone who knew Doyle. May memories of good times last forever, and may time ease the pain of your loss.

    Best wishes to all of you. -Norm

  2. Mary Jane and kids,
    We were saddened to read of Doyle’s passing. It set Dad to remembering card night and Mom to remembering school days in Oklahoma. I remember being friends with a wonderful family and all the fun we all had. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
