  1. The Lord has received a “gem” with Doris Laneheart. I grew up knowing her and her family through our membership in Calvary Baptist Church in Bryan, Texas. A lot of good times and memories. I am certain she will be extremely missed by her family. A wonderful role model for her family and all her friends.

  2. Doris was such a sweet person and was so friendly with everyone who came in contact with her. What beautiful memories I have of her at Calvary Fellowship. God bless each of you as you celebrate a life well lived.

  3. Remembering this fine lady as we worked together, for a time, many years ago. Love and prayers for her family

  4. My cousin-our Moms were sisters

    My friend in later years we visited each other often. She told how much she loved my dad and how much she now enjoyed my company

    Fantastic lady
