    I was a next door neighbor to JB and Doris for almost 8 years. They were two of the nicest people that I have ever known. Deepest sympathy to all their family.

    My mom, Lorene Parker Gregory, are first cousins and grew up together. I’ve always enjoyed the stories she would tell about them and the antics they pulled when they were ornery little kids. Over the years I got to know JB and Doris through our family reunions and the Cousins’ Breakfasts. They were precious people and will be sorely missed.

    Lorene Parker is our mother and we have enjoyed, all of the times that we spent with J.B. and Doris. The family reunion and going to the cabin, and J.B.driving us around showing us his cattle and the area and sharing family stories, has been a treasure to us. We loved going to Shady Cove and eating with them as well..Loved hearing Doris talk about her family and all the history of childhood happenings.. One special story is when J.B. was about eight years old and would ride his bike to Doris house and ask family ” Does Doris like me?”.The way she told the story made us all laugh!! We are so very sorry for your loss, you had wonderful parents. and they meant so much to so many..

    Sorry for your loss, however, JB had been “lost” to his family off and on for some time He is happy, united with Doris. Jerry was the one he would look up for assistance at Ace and they would have many conversations. For a time we were able to keep up with Doris condition as JB would have been in the store They were a loving couple and are now again.

    They have left behind a wonderful legacy.

    Condolences to the Gregory Family

    We could not make it to the Funeral Home due to another commitment, but we are both thinking of the family
