Diane, Shelia, and Connie, May God comfort and bless you at this time. May all of the sweet memories remain with you. He was a special man. His legacy was great: look at the wonderful family he left behind. Diane, you will always have a special place in my heart. Love you girl!

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family... I fondly remember this gentleman from my childhood and he certainly was special.

We'll always remember Uncle Doug's stories, his fishing lessons, his bush-hogging the paths so we could walk the farm, his carrying little Jazz everywhere. He loved the family so much and we love him.
