To the family,
Although I never met your loved one, Doug, I have on several occasions enjoyed his delicious food. His niece Elizabeth Colvin and I are dear friends. I know she loved him and looked up to him a lot. He will be missed. May God ease your grief with the many wonderful memories you have of him.
All the best to you and yours,
Daffana Gray.

My sincerest condolences to the family at this time. I pray that God will give you peace and comfort for the days to come. I was always very fond of Uncle Doug, because he reminded me of my daddy. The picture that was posted on Facebook, truly reminds me of my daddy. I just want you to know that you have despite the circumstances, that you still have family that's here that loves you and supports you in your time of need. I'm so sorry for your loss more than you know.
Ulanda Chambers-Suggs and family.
