Carolyn and family,
We are all so sorry to learn that Doug has passed. Doug was one person who always had a positive outlook on life and life’s events no matter what was happening. I hope we can all learn a lesson from his life and be positive and cheerful and find some good in everything.
God bless all of Doug’s family and friends (hundreds of people) and give them some comfort at this time and going forward.
Doug was a great cousin. Proud to call him a friend also. Sympathies to his family and the rest of the Amos and Lola clan.
To Carolyn and Steve (and the rest of the family);
My deepest condolences on the passing of Doug. I have known him for 35 plus years and he always had that tell-tale smile on his face and kind things to say. He will be sadly missed.
I am so saddened to hear of Doug’s passing. He was one of the best. Cherish every memory and moment you had with him to always keep his spirit alive. Watch for him, when you need him he will be there in little signs. God bless his soul, may he rest in peace. Hugs and prayers.
So sorry for your loss, sending our condolences and are prayers to all of Doug family. Will try to make it down some other time to get together.
My deepest heart felt sympathy.
Got to work with Doug for a number of years @ Littfin’s and we also went hunting on each others land. Great guy and will be missed.
Sorry for your loss, we will keep you and the family in our thoughts and prayers.
