    I have fond childhood memories of Doris’ home cooked meals as a guest at the Akerman dinner table. As I came to know her over the years, I learned she had a genuine interest in people, deep compassion for folks in the community, amazing intuition, a kind heart, and a strong faith that brought her through many challenges.
    Heartfelt sympathy to Wayne and family.
    Respectfully: Ross Sarkela, Iron, MN.
