As I start to pack for my trip home to Seattle I am overwhelmed by all the kind words shared by so many people. Doug was truly an amazing man. His life has been taken earlier than expected and he will be missed by many. I would like to thank the Violet Township Fire department, friends and family for all their support. The stories shared by so many made this situation a little easier to get through. I can't put in to words how much I'm going to miss you Doug. I love you very much. Your Brother........Brad
