I just found out today about Doug’s death. As the “older sister” on Southmont- I have fond memories of Doug hanging out with my brothers, arranging kickball games in the circle, and always smiling. It was a life gift to have grown up in that neighborhood to to have had Doug as a friend.

Doug was such a great next door neighbor to have! For the over 20 years that we lived next to him, he was always outside, always reporting the weather and Razorback news, always reminding me to mow my lawn and the thing I miss most... always taking my trash to the curb even though I never once asked him to do it. That was Doug... consistent, helpful, and friendly. There will never be another like him.

Lynn, I have no words to offer that have not been said before, but I am praying for you all that you find comfort in the Lord. I know it was so difficult to not be with him, but Doug knew he was loved by his family. It may have even made it easier for him to "let go" to be with your mom and dad, where there is no suffering or pain. You are all in my prayers and in my heart.

I just want to let you know that you and your family are in my thoughts. I can remember walking home from the bus stop and when I would pass your house, Doug would always greet me and ask me how I was doing. Always smiling!

Doug was a huge part of my sister's and my childhood with him living right across the street from our house. Our neighborhood of kids spent many a day playing football, kickball, and other childhood games in Doug's side yard because he had such a large lot. My daddy especially liked Doug and even took him to some of the Arkansas Traveler's games with our family when we went. There were no events in our Meadowcliff (Southmont) neighborhood that Doug was not a part of. The kids in our neighborhood would all go trick-or-treating together, have huge Easter Eggs hunts, we would gather down in the circle to shoot off each other's stockpiles of fireworks on the 4th of July, ride bikes and go exploring together, attend each other's birthday parties, or walk as a group to Mr. Nickle's store to buy candy and ice cream bars. Whatever it was, Doug was included and excited to go along with us! He was an integral part in teaching us all to appreciate the value in this world of people with disabilities! He was a very valuable part of my childhood and will always be loved and thought of with warm memories! The photo I am sharing was taken in Doug's side yard and includes (L to R) Doug, his schoolmate Diane, Karen Copeland, & Janet Copeland.
