Oh, my. How sad to hear this news today. We enjoyed getting to know Doug so much and enjoyed visiting with him on Sundays at Martin-Boyd when it was our congregation's time to have the service. Our thoughts, love and prayers that the God of all peace will give all of the family great comfort. With our love.
