You also had a warm and calm demeanor . There wasn’t a person that you didn’t get along with. You were well loved. My heart is sad. I wished I would have been there when you went to meet our savior. I will miss you so so much my beloved brother.

  10. Doug was my buddy, my brother, the husband of my best friend and one of the best, honest and most righteous men I ever knew. He was always fun, would give the shirt off his back if someone needed it, or just listen if someone needed to talk. I met Doug a while before I knew Sherry and once I met them together I knew these were lifelong friends. It’s been over 40 years that I’ve know Doug and he never wavered from who he truely was. He was the rock in a whole bunch of our lives. Love you Doug and I will always be here for your family. Love and will miss you forever.

  11. Sherry, Kayla, Dustan, Hazel, and Dezmon, We are thinking about yall and praying and praying. May God comfort you and hold you and give you peace! What a blessing he was ! Thank you Lord for giving us Doug,and thank you Lord for taking his pain away! Thank you Lord for giving them strength daily. We still praise you in our storms! I love yall!

  12. Doug was always one of the brightest stars in my constellation. It will be hard to imagine a world without him in it, a world where I can’t call him up just to chat and laugh. Although the world for me is darker without him in it, it gets a little brighter when I think of him. Talking with him always made things seem a little more cheerful and just being with him made me happy. I can’t count the times we laughed until we cried and our sides hurt. He will always be my little brother and I will always miss him. Having him leave so soon and suddenly, and so young, strikes home that we never have as much time as we think we are going to. I guess I’ll always wish I had seen his face and held him one more time, and I will always miss him. I love you Dougie…
