Our heartfelt sympathy to Wanda & the entire family for the passing of our good friend and next door neighbor, Doug. We will miss his quick dry wit & his visits over here when he would stop by, have a beer, joke & chat with us & that grin! He was so knowledgeable on many subjects & what a great sense of humor plus a very good euchre player. Whenever I had a question on my plants I would turn to him and/or Wanda. Lou really thought the world of Doug. He was truly a nice guy. We are really sad to have lost him. RIP our dear friend. You will missed so much.
