Only just now learned about Doug, Dana. You have both individually, and as a couple, been a bright spot in my work environment over the years. I'm retired now, but I will remember Doug with respect, and both of you fondly.

Dana, so sorry to read about Doug. He would stop & talk to me while I was waiting after work for my husband to pick me up. He was such a nice guy. Will keep you in my prayers.

Dayna, Janet and I are sorry to hear about Doug's passing. Although I didn't work directly with him, he was always a gentleman and a professional. You will remain in our thoughts.

I had the privelege of working with and for both Dayna and Doug. Doug always was so calm while the rest of us were losing our minds, and would send us on our way with more confidence and direction. My heart goes out to his family, especially Dayna.

Dearest Dayna, I am so sorry to learn of Doug's passing away...I thought back to serving with him on the Austin Mayor's Committee for People with Disabilities. It was a peek into his leadership skills and, more importantly, his compassion. But, foremost in my thoughts is his beaming face when you became a part of his world!!! Our God is a Great God and is always with you and your family--to comfort you during this time, and always, and I do believe Doug is with him now. You and Amy are in our thoughts and prayers.
