Gilford, NH, Community Comes Together To Support Family Who Lost Their 16-Year-Old Daughter

Ava Doris was my best friend’s first cousin, and when I heard what happened Tuesday morning I felt sick to my stomach. I cannot even begin to fathom the grief that this family is feeling from this tragic and unfair loss.

Ava had her license only for three weeks when she went to go pick her dad, who is a Gilford Police Department dispatcher, early from work Tuesday morning. The snowstorm had already started up, leaving the roads slick and icy. Ava lost control of her vehicle and hit a tree on route 11A.

Ava was extremely loved. Whether they were co-workers at Gilford House of Pizza, field hockey teammates, family or friends, everyone who knew her can agree that Ava was very special.

It is so important that the Doris family feels support and love as they try to cope with this unexpected loss. The Gilford community has come together in a huge way over the past few days to pay their respects.

According to NH1, the community has raised funds through¬†GoFundMe and YouCaring¬†to help alleviate costs for Ava’s memorial service.

In addition to cash donations, people are also offering the family meals through Meal Train. Members of the community have signed up to make the Doris family breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next week and a half while they grieve.

Information on Ava’s Memorial Service can be found on the YouCaring site.
