Doris Jean Troxler and her family were life-long friends of my late wife, Melvine Stewart Morgan, of Draper. Their families were members and leaders in the Draper Pentecostal Holiness Church where Melvine and I were married on August 13, 1960. We loved to visit in their home and eat the finest Southern Cuisine cooking. Our children loved it too, and consider Doris and Frances to be their aunts, although no blood kin. Doris Jean's father was the best at frying chicken. Melvine loved to eat the chicken livers. Frances made the best pimento cheese in the known world, as well as Country Fried Steak with lots of veggies and dinner rolls with fabulous apple pie with ice cream. We would spend hours in their home on the hill. We enjoyed dining with them at Fisherman's Galley in Eden, the best kept secret in seafood restaurants in the South. We enjoyed eating there with Pastor Ben Rose and Beverly, his wife, as well as Bobby and Neva Saunders. I called Ben Rose, Bishop Rose. In addition, we would have breakfast with Doris Jean and Frances on Monday's at Bojangles to eat their Ham and Egg biscuits. grits, and gravy. Then, we will get back on the highway and drive six hours to our home in Winder, GA. We bless the memory of Doris Jean Troxler.
