Our Sincere Condolences
My thoughts and prayers are with Jim and the Logston Family during this difficult time.
I am so saddened to hear of Doris’s passing. We had so much fun with her, Jim, and their kids back when we were young and they came to our house to play Canasta with my parents. She was an extremely sweet and kind lady and will always be remembered in fond memories.

I only recently heard of Doris passing away and I am deeply saddened to hear this and wish to extend my condolences to Jim and the rest of the family. Doris was a schoolmate & a very good friend of mine and also she was a classmate & a dear friend to my wife Shirley all through school at Breckenridge, MO. After we married our families drifted apart but we renewed our friendship most every year at the Breckenridge, MO Alumni Banquet. Doris was greatly missed at the recent Alumni Banquet by her friends and school classmates and all were saddened to hear of her passing as for some this was the first they had heard of our loss. Hang in there Jimbo.
