Sorry for your loss. I’ll miss his smile and monthly visit. I called him my no band-aid man. Jill (port nurse). Prayers.

So many motorcycle rides, jeep rides in the woods- he has left us with so many fond memories. Doug was quick witted and a kind man. We loved having he and Betty and the kids come visit us "country folk!" Harold, Rita, Tammie, Pandy and Dee- so sorry for your loss. We loved him too!

About 57 or 58 years ago I had the privilege of meeting the Sheckels family. My childhood friend, Darrell Bowden, would take me with him to visit his family. I got to know those Sheckel boys. I remember the Jeep s they played with in the woods. I enjoyed hearing Aunt Nettie preach. Darrell's mother, LouDell was a sister to these great guys. My life has been enriched because of the Sheckels. What a beautiful family! God bless!
