"Happy Birthday my friend.  Just want you to know we miss you Doug but we also are celebrating you.  We have our memories and we laugh and we shed some tears.  The day you called me is a day I remember very well I can hear your voice yet saying we need to play some golf and talking about getting together at your place.  You also wished me happy birthday you never done that before a month later you were gone.  Every year that day comes around I remember our talk it means a lot to me.  So I just want to say Happy Birthday Doug!

Love you
Rick."

"I can't believe you have been gone for one year.. Still doesn't seem real uncle Doug. You were the light in everyone's life. Shared  some great stories about u last night with Tim & Rick. You would have wanted that. Mom is struggling with losing you, she misses you so much. Just wants to pick up the phone & have u answer. You have inspired us to do something with our lives & be proud.. You will forever & always be our family's inspiration.. Love you so much & miss you more than I can ever put into words.."

"Well Doug been 1 year today when you left this earth.  A lot has happened in my life this year.  I have opened up my own restaurant with my wife kids and Tim.  A fire was lit under me to get my dreams into reality.  Had lunch today with mom Robyn and Tim shared some laughs and some tears.  I know your looking over mom and she misses you a great deal.  I think she has some comfort knowing she will be with you again.  I know you have touched each of our lives in a different way and just want to say I think about you every day and I miss you."

"My dearest uncle,
Christmas wasn't the same this year without ur smile & laughter.. It never will be the same. I know u were smiling down on us with grandma, but we wished you were us. Not a day goes by without thinking about you. Your goddaughter prays about you every night. Oh how I wish she could hold your hand & you could tell her stories, she would laugh at the funny things you would tell her..I miss you so much, it's still so hard to know ur gone. It does give me comfort to know your our guardian angel watching over us with grandma. I love u my dearest uncle."

"Doug was "Everyone's big brother".  He wanted to help everyone he could, in anyway he could.  In the several years I worked with him, I was always impressed with how he treated the people around him.  He is now a missing person from my list of favorite people.  Doug was all about having fun, laughing with others and even at himself. I loved the way he waited for the punch line of a long joke, just like a kid waiting to see Santa Clause.  He loved to laugh and often laughed himself to tears. One of my favorite memories was of him tell me about a brand new sports car he bought right out of High School.  It came with a cassette player and he had the dealership pull it out and replace it with an 8-Track player, because he thought "those cassettes will never catch on".  He told me he liked sticking with what worked, just like his haircut.  :-)     Doug was also wise beyond his years.  Years ago, when I was just a new employee and a Newlywed, he advised me to start saving for retirement.  I told him I had no extra money to do such a thing.  With some tough love, he made me promise to start right then.  I did so, and it was a great and rare piece of advice from one young person to another.  
Doug, you are missed by so many. -- Skip"

"To the best boss that I have ever had. Doug, you will forever be a part of my memories. You led by example in all you did. It was never above you to pick up the phone, load a trailer, pick up garbage outside, paint a bathroom, unclog a drain, make coffee (way to weak in the opinion of all the guys) or anything else that needed to get done at Guardian. I've never had a boss in my life that I was good friends with. I loved how you would come and sit on the chair in front of my desk and tell me about something fun you had done the previous weekend, or tell me a "dumb joke". But Oh! how I loved talking about the Word with you. I loved how excited you would get when you would discover something in the Bible that ministered to you. I would sit with my head in my hands, elbows on my desk enthralled in one of your sweet stories about your dear friends that lived up by you. How much you loved them and loved to help them. They must miss you as badly as I do...I can see you in my mind walking with Jesus asking him so many questions, I can hear you laugh when you share with Jesus what your take is on the subject. I imagine you wrapping your arms around your Mom when you got to Heaven lifting her up in the air and spinning her around. You always spoke so highly of her. I can imagine all who knew you here on this earth rushing to greet you when they heard that you had arrived. Until I can see you again I will hold your memory close to my heart."

"I will never forget your smile, it was contagious!  We always had a good time together. You usually had a joke or prank to play on someone. I will always remember the birthday cake you gave me.....everyone had a good laugh. Such a kind, hard working, fun loving man. You will be missed and will forever have a place in our hearts. Love you, Annie & Joe"

"My dear little brother words can't even begin to describe to say how much I miss you. Not a day goes by that I don't think about u. We've had so many good times with you and Gloria in the Hills. The campfires at the camp ground & in your tepee were so much fun. Remember my hillbilly dance, that was just for you.
Christmas will never be the same without you there. You were the life of the party.
I remember when you were little I dressed you up for Halloween and you loved it! That carried on with u through the years.
I will never forget the motorcycle ride you gave me on your new Harley to Keystone. I will cherise that moment forever because were you were so proud. I will hold all the memories I have with you close to my heart everyday.
You will always be my best friend.  I know your looking down and smiling with mom right now. Someday we will be together again but until that day your memory will love on within me.  
I love you more than words my dearest brother.
Your sister,
Carol"

"What  can I say but there's not a day that goes by that I don't think about you.  All the memories that you helped create.  I like the Christmas memories especially the guess what's in the box game you made that game very interesting the family knows what I'm talking about I can just hear your laughter.  Doug I have always admired and looked up to you all that you accomplished while you were here.  Personally you have motivated me to get it done while I'm on this earth.  You were in quite a few stories when dad and I talked about you and always had free lifetime food at little Italy's.  I'm remember that one year when you brought those cherries you said here rick you got to try one these are fresh from the hills.  So I tried one and about passed out should have known as you called them hillbilly cherries loaded with moonshine.  I know I wasn't the first victim.  I miss you man and as long as I'm still breathing your memory will live on!!  You deserve a proper tribute and your family is doing their best to give it to you.  Every time I eat a corndog French fries or anything fried foods I will I have a smile and think of you I hope they have those things in heaven buddy cause your loving it now.  I love you Doug and I will see you soon."

"My dearest Uncle Doug, not a day goes by that I don't think about your beautiful smile and how many lives you touched through the years. You always had a twinkle in your eyes and the heart of gold. We will forever keep your memory alive within us and our children. We miss you every day. Until we see each other again I know you will be our guardian angel. I love you more than I can say into words."
