Aunt Mary, Petey, and Bo,

You are in our thoughts and prayers. Uncle Dougie will be missed. When ever I think of him, I always see his face with a big smile. I can't remember a time I didn't see him smiling. The world will be a little less bright without his wonderful smile.

Love to you all,

Micki and Troy
