May God bless you Doris and the entire Henry family.
I have great gratitude and appreciation for Doris and Darrell as they helped me grow up by employing me at Coleridge Oil for for over seven years as I went through Coleridge High School and college at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln.
I was able to earn enough money by working for Doris and Darrell to put myself through school by working during the summer months, Saturdays during the school year, and any school breaks. I have always remembered the lessons of business, working with people, and provided services to customers I was taught while working for them, and those lessons were the base that helped me accomplish many professional successes.
Both Darrell and Doris have been my great friends for over 40 years. They have always taken great interest in what I am doing and been great supporters of me and my life's pursuits. And they have always made Coleridge feel like home when returning for visits.
Thank you Doris for everything that you have done for me over the many years and for the incredible support you have given me. I am eternally thankful.
God bless you Doris and may you rest in peace.
