We're so sorry for hearing of cousin Doris' passing. I'm part of the Mayers of Alabama. Her father (Uncle) Frank and my grandfather George Mayer of Nutley were brothers. Last time I saw Doris was Sept 1994 at my grandmother's (Mayer) funeral in Nutley. God rest her soul and peace to all the family!
