Doris Barish Freed was 91. She died on Wednesday.
If you’ve ever heard the phrase “you’re a good egg,” it was invented for people like my Aunt Doris.
She met my Uncle Sol when she was 16
They got married when she was was 19 and he was 21
And stayed married for 71 years
Unbelievably happily married
If you go out to eat with them, you can count on an endless stream
of some of the kindest, sweetest people
interrupting your dinner to reminisce about the old days.
If Aunt Dot had a website, you can bet the first 7 seconds would say:
Know that you are loved. Doris Barish Freed
1931 – 2021
May her memory be a blessing.
P.S. Doris’s husband Sol turns 93 next week. If you are at a restaurant in Dallas and it suddenly becomes clear to you that you’ve just seen the most delightful man you’ve ever laid eyes on, stop over and say hi. He’d love to see you.
