Mrs. Doris Stirling Watson 89 of Frederick went home to the Lord surrounded by her loving family on Tuesday, August 18. She was the devoted wife of Larry M. Watson.

They moved with their family, to the United States in 1926.Doris was gentle and loving and very devoted to her husband and family. She was very kind, easy to be with and had a keen sense of humor.

When her children started school, Doris returned to work as an Office Manager in the Medical field. She worked in Long Island, NY and part time in Crofton MD over twenty five years. Although Doris accomplished many things in her life and was active in many organizations, Doris' life was centered around her love for God, her church and her love for her family and friends. Doris made each day special and each day was filled with her love. Doris was an inspiration to the many lives she touched.

Saturday Road Trip

On Saturday, 7/18, my parents, Buddy, Tyler, Jilli and I went for a little road trip. Our first stop was the Homosassa Butterfly Attraction. What a neat experience that was. After a brief movie explaining the life cycle of a butterfly, they walk you around and show you live caterpillars, eggs, crysalis's and butterflies. Then, you get to go out in to the live habitat, where they give you a butterfly to let free. It's amazing how you can pick up the butterflies ever so gently by the wings and then just hold them in your hand (or shirt or head as you'll see in the pics) It is such a beautiful experience. I highly recommend it to everyone.

After the Butterfly Attraction we headed over to Rainbow Springs. The waterfalls were so beautiful to look at and relaxing to listen to. After we walked around a bit to see the sights, including an outdoor butterfly garden, my Dad, Buddy, Tyler and Jilli all went swimming in the springs for a bit.

Hot Summer Nights at Busch Gardens

Hula Hoop fun...even the DJ was impressed...

Tyler wasn't with us this day as he was in St Augustine Beach with a friend of his for the week, where he learned how to surf and went to the Daytona 250 on 7/3.
