Sorry for your loss. I enjoyed having him as my Sunday School Teacher at West Tenth Street Baptist Church. He made the class interesting. He called upon me many times since I was usually the only female in class. He was always friendly and eager to help or listen to your situation,

As I grew into an adult, I valued DeWayne and Betty's friendship. He loved sharing stories about his family.

I am blessed he was in my life. My love and prayers are with the family.

I liked Doug. He was a co-worker of mine in the AT&T training organization. I dropped by his classes and offered to bring him a cup of coffee often. We went to Winston-Salem to share information about OKC with those who where moving to OKC. I had him paged in the hotel lobby as Henry and he did not recognize his name. Duane Egglebretson said to him Doug I think that is you they want. Sure enough it was...we had a good laugh about that and many other things. Doug was a great guy. My sympathy goes out to his wife and family. Sorry I can attend his service.
