We just found out the bad news yesterday about Doug. Mrs. Williams stopped by local gas station with UPS near our home and bumped into and told me about Doug's accident on I-80.
Carol and I were in shock. We can't imagine the pain Skip and Joyce are going through.
We are so sorry about the loss of Doug. He grew up into a very good man and father.
Wish we didn't live so far away from you all as kids grew up. We will keep family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
We love you Skip and Joyce.
God bless you and family.

Of all the qualities that God possesses, love is the most dominant one. He loves us so much that he gave his only begotten Son so that we may live. Life is what he purposed, not death. Soon he will swallow up death forever and remove all the things that causes pain and suffering. Until that time may each of you take comfort in him and in each other
