Ollie, so sorry to hear about Doug. My Dad,s sister Melody, sent me the Obituary. My Mom and Dad always had great stories to tell me about the fun you all all had years ago. You all looked like you had a lot of laughs together over the years from a couple of pictures that I had seen. Tell Kevin and Barry that I am sorry for their loss and I hope that as things move forward you will all remember the good times.

My heart is broken at the loss of my favourite Uncle, Doug Soper. He was the very best and always treated me more as a daughter than a niece. I will never forget the times I spent with Uncle Doug. You may be gone from this earth, Uncle Doug, but you will never be forgotten! You will always be in my heart. Love and hugs from your niece, Bonnie.
