5/21 when added together equals 8 and turned on it's side is the sign of infinity. May our memories together live on forever. 
Love & miss you forever & ever..

Driving down I10 yesterday & thought of Doug as we passed the little town of Flatonia. Many fun chili-cook off memories! Miss you, Doug!

Rich and I think of Doug often with fond memories. We toasted to him yesterday and played some Zappa in his honor. Missing you love Rhea and Rich.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRO !!! Wish you could be here to celebrate it with us. Hope you are celebrating from another dimension :>) Some day, I'll be there with you, so keep a beer cold for me.

Love you and miss you more than ever,

Miss you more than ever Bro-bert :>) Went down to the Ponce Inlet Light House yesterday with Summer, Savannah and Ellen/Mom/Oma. We threw some flowers into the water at the pier where we tossed in the ashes. Ate a dozen oysters and drank 2 beers in Doug's honor. Need to download the pictures now. Thinking about Doug all the time and still can't believe he's gone :>(

I love looking at the photos. Doug, you would love Tucker, Geri's furry pal. He's a good dog and good companion.
Posted by Geri White on May 21, 2013
Continue to think of you everyday and will always miss you ...from giving your opinion on which earrings I should wear to your hugs and kisses. Ironically, Dave Matthews Band was to play in Austin tonight. I know you're at peace and enjoying your after life just like you loved your life here. Wait for me....can't wait to laugh with you again. Love you forever!

Two years have gone by in a heartbeat. Know you are sharing your tremendous warmth and love in the afterlife. Miss you still!

Happy Birthday, Doug. The smile on your face was always contagious. Wish we could've been neighbors a lot longer.

Happy Birthday Doug!!!

We will celebrate your birth today. Wish you were here!

Dear Doug,
I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence, and often speak your name.
All I have are memories and picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part.
God has you in his arms - I have you in my heart.

I love you Uncle Doug. Miss you so much! Where ever you ventured on to, I hope you're having a blast. <3

It's been a little over a year. I still just can't believe it, that Doug is not with us here any longer. I miss his political emails, our humorous phone convesations and especially our visits and travels together. His spirit lives on in our hearts and his memory makes me glad to have known him and shared so many good times. Rock on, bro', you're still my favorite brother, EVER!
Posted by Geri White on May 23, 2012
What a year. Doug, I miss you more than you could imagine..... your love, optimism, humor, patience and everything else. But, I'm grateful to have all the memories of our good times together, some that still make me LOL. You were a one and only and I'll always love you.
Posted by Karen Valente on May 23, 2012
We were talking about Doug last week in Dallas with some old mutual friends. We laughed about all the practical jokes that Doug played on us over the years. We miss him!
Posted by Helen Nerviano on May 21, 2012
I can't believe it has been a year already since we lost Doug. We still think about him all the time and know his presence lives on through all the happy memories we have of him. To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.

Doug's Celebration sounded wonderful - I wish I could have been there but was here in spirit. We will always
hold him in our hearts and our prayers will alway be with you Geri. Love Jean & David

The Celebration pictures are posted and thanks so much to Cindy for taking them! It was great to see everyone, but the time went way too fast. Doug would have had a grand time. I sincerely thank EVERYONE for your support, thoughts and prayers over the past months!! Love, Geri

If any one has pictures from the 10/9/11 party, please post/share on this site or send to me via email ( Thanks again. It was so great seeing you and being together to celebrate Doug's life. I love you all!
Posted by Ron Bradley on October 17, 2011
It was great seeing friends and family together on 10/9/11. Many I had not seen since Doug and Geri's wedding (1991), others almost as long; all too infrequently. The party reminded me how charming and entertaining Doug and all our friends are. Wish it could have lasted longer!!!

I would like to thank everyone for their participation (in person and in spirit) in Doug's memorial celebration event on 9 Oct 2011. Although bad weather caused the boat ride out in to the Atlantic to be cancelled, we were able to give Doug's ashes to the sea via Ponce Inlet.

Today we will celebrate the 54th anniversary of your birth. We miss you, bro :(

Knowing Doug was such a fine way to cap off the 80s and start the 90s. His smile brightened Houston summer days. His laughter- more refreshing than a round at the Ale House. Sad that our paths diverged. Catch ya later! John & Gwen

It was always a pleasure to see Doug around the Villas. He always had a smile and a friendly word which usually resulted in a nice conversation. We're glad we had the opportunity to know him. Bonita and Gary
Posted by Lora Herring on June 23, 2011
I am sorry I didn't get to know Doug for very long. He was always smiling and happy. Now I see why - he apparently lived life to the fullest and enjoyed all kinds of places and experiences. The photos were wonderful. I will miss him.

Doug, you were not the best croquet player in the world. Swnding your green ball was always fun. We have retired your mallet. Did not know you for long enough, but we knew our friendship would last forever. We miss you so much. Our Sundays will

I'm proud to say the other "evil" Doug was my friend. I know I'll see things that will remind me of Doug (like Dave's Insanity hot sauce) and I'll smile. You are missed Doug.
Posted by Del Baker on June 10, 2011
Doug was one of my best friends from the time we met. We lived one block away from each other and hung out together for many years. He was my Best Man at my first wedding. We always stayed in touch. Nothing but fun memories and good times. He will be

Doug shared my credo, "Have a good time, all of the time" (and did a good job living up to it).
He also lived up to the old show-business credo, "Give the people what they want, but always leave them wanting more." Rock on!
Posted by Ron Bradley on June 9, 2011
Doug was certainly a fun guy to be with; intellectual conversation, broad musical and video entertainment tastes, enjoyment of good food and drink from all around the world, scuba/snorkeling/beach/skiing enthusiast, and all-around great guy!
Posted by Ron Bradley on June 9, 2011
Doug was my favorite brother, ever. We had such a great childhood together and were best friends as teenagers all the way through to the end. We stayed close through frequent visits, phone calls and email. I love you, bro' and always look up to yo

Doug was like a well loved member of our family. He was in our wedding in 1989 and did us the honor of being Gina's godfather in 1993. I met him in 1986 and have enjoyed his friendship ever since. I loved him very much and he will be missed.
Posted by Fred Valente on June 8, 2011
My friendship with Doug goes back nearly 32 years. We worked and played together, went on trips together and tipped many
a beer together. The stories are too countless to write. Needless to say his passing leaves a great emptiness.

I am truly saddened having read of the passing of my dear friend Roy, as I knew him from DeLand High school. After High school, Roy and I found cheap apartments on Smith St. Many great memories were made there. My condolences for your loss Geri.

This is a great tribute web site. The pictures take me way back to memories from Houston. I've known Doug for nearly 30 years. A great man, someone you just wanted to be around if you wanted to be happy. I will miss him
Posted by Tony Balistreri on June 1, 2011
Doug is already missed. I am still having a hard time believing it. He was truly a great guy and an awesome friend. I remember countless nights spent at the Bradley-White residence on my many visits to Big D. Doug and Geri were always great hosts. Ou

Well, somehow this video, which my PC's player plays sideways, comes out upside down after uploading it.  The other two videos play right-side-up.
