Personal Notes:
Family Memories from Susan Aud Sonders: I loved going to Doris and Dorothy’s. I got to be with Janelle and both families always gathered around to make the table rise and talk. When I look back, I see my Dad laughing and hear Doris prodding and gently coaxing the table in his deep voice. We were always so astounded by the table’s accuracy to questions! To this day, we try to recreate those times, and when we try to “talk it up” I think of Doris. At the Cumberland church Cater reunion, we moved the table up and down as it answered yes and no questions and then we decided that we should make it levitate off of its four legs. It began to rotate in a circle so fast that we had to kick our chairs out of the way! We were laughing so hard that we couldn’t stand up. At the 2005 Cater reunion, I missed Doris’s presence as we had a very difficult time rising it up. When it finally began to cooperate, I made the mistake of asking it how long it would be before Lindsay found her soul-mate. Unfortunately it counted it out in months! It moved up and down 60 times so quickly that we couldn’t keep our fingers resting on it! It’s still not quite the same making the table talk without him, but it ties me to him with fond memories each time we do it
