    Pug was my bonus granny and I loved her dearly. I’ll never forget the hundreds of meals she cooked for me and all of her stories of times past. I will treasure all those Sunday afternoons spent with her. Forever in my heart.

    Pug and Doan were a team , you always saw the two togeather ,my fondest memories of Mary Elizabeth “Pug” , Doan and I attending numerous Republican events, like when the Late Honorable Louie B. Nunn sought a second term as Governor, when he ran against John Y. Brown, we went all over Central Ky. to support Louie B. Nunn, another time I remember so fondly was the time we went to a reception for Mich McConnell at the Idle Hour Country Club in Lexington, it was on a Sunday afternoon , there was a large attendance, time was running short for I was to be back to Ramsey Funeral home to work a visitation, Doan said “this man has got to be back to Lancaster to work at the funeral home,” Mich heard that and let us cut the line to speak to him, there a just a few things we did with each other, Pug and Doan are two of the best friends I have. I remember “Pug’s” sence of humor and her smile, Doan I know you are going to miss he dearly.
