"Time really does fly the older we become. Ten years. It only seems like yesterday. Thinking of you all. I know the Lord holds you all in His hands as you miss Doug every passing day."
"Well Doug, we've taken another trip around the sun without you. We are without you, but your memory and spirit live on in your sons and daughters. Wish you could see the adults they have grown into. You would be so proud of them. I wish you could meet your grandchildren. Your kids and grandkids are keeping your legacy alive. We miss you, and we always will. Rest in peace Brother."
"Thinking of you all at this time of year. I know you miss him very much. So happy that we all know that we will see him again.
"I cannot believe it has been 8 years. I still think about you all this time of year and say a prayer that God has His sweet hand on each of you.
What a great man. What an amazing love story.
Love you all!
"Doug would be so proud of his loved ones at well you are living your lives. I have no doubt that he is watching over all of you. Roll On! All my love, Charlotte"
"We all miss you but know you are in a better place. Don't catch all of the fish before I get there Brother."
"Wow, it has been 7 and a half years since Doug earned his wings. It does not seem near that long. I have looked through the pictures again today admiring the 'sparkle' between the two of you, Evelyn. The wonderful memories live on. I know that he is so proud of you all.
"To my dearest Doug....ten years ago today, we packed your Dodge and headed to the Texas coast to celebrate your 50th Birthday. I cherish the life we had together and celebrate the wonderful man who gave so much of himself to others. I know you are watching over our children, as they are such wonderful adults, rest in peace my beloved. xo"
"Sending love and prayers of comfort to my loved ones who suffer the most from our loss of Doug: Evelyn, Emily, Danny, Jessica and Dustin. I love each of you so much and pray for you daily. It has been seven years since he left us - and that still feels so unreal. We were so blessed to have such an honorable man in our family. xoxoxo"
"My dear sweet Evelyn...I will always remember the smile on your face when Doug walked into Applebee's to meet "all the sisters" that day in OS. I could see that day, that Doug was your heart. I admire your strength during such a difficult time in your life. You have taught me that through God, anything is bearable and worth the fight:) Doug was a lucky man to have met you, Evelyn. XOXOXOXO"
"It doesn't seem as if four years have come and gone. I still think about Doug every time I look at the purple ribbon on the sunvisor in my truck. What I remember most about that time was the love I felt all around. Doug left such an imprint on his loved ones and the world. Seeing all of the people who came out to show respect spoke volumes about what kind of life he lived. What an awesome man:)"
"Doug faught the fight, won the battle but lost the war but wears the crown.
He came in the clinic and you could see the glow when he saw Evelyn - this is LOVE - the way God ment it to be.
He lives on through his wonderful family that I'm sure he watches and would be very proud. We should all be glad to have known him even if it was like a short time. Gone but now forgotten!"
"When I met Doug, he was so sweet and so funny! When you looked at him and Evelyn, the love you could see in their eyes was undeniable. I did not know him well, but over the years through the stories and tributes I have had the pleasure of hearing, I feel like I knew him well. What a wonderful husband and father. I know you all miss him very much. I love you all and pray for you often. Love, Kandis"
"I remember Doug as being a super nice guy, always friendly and willing to help you with anything. I can't believe he has been gone for four years. We never know when the lord will call you home. God bless you Evelyn and your family."
"A Husband to my Sister, a Daddy to my Nieces, a Son to my Parents, and a Brother to me. Doug filled so many roles within our family just as he filled our lives with his humour, love and support. His light still shines through the lives that he touched."
"Doug received his eternal wings and took a piece of our hearts with him...but his legacy and love live on through his children. I miss my best friend with every breath and will continue to find my way in this world with the help of our Heavenly Father."
"Tomorrow marks four years since Daddy passed away. I still miss him sooo much and wish that he was here for me to call and talk to - to tell him about my problems, share my future plans, break some big news... I know he'd be proud of me - I know he IS proud of me. Just miss him like crazy!!"
