Jack, Liz, and Ken... I just learned of Doug's passing and was so saddened to hear the news. Nothing I could ever say can ease the pain of losing a precious son (and brother) but please know that I am praying for you and I am a phone call away Liz if you need to talk to someone who understands what you are feeling. I love you all. May God bless you and be close to you!

Jack, Liz and family, May it be a tiny comfort to know others care and are continuing to think of you and keep you in prayers. Doug touched my life just a few brief moments, but his joyful smile was contagious. This is what I will remember. You are very special to me. Thank you for being the wonderful parents who raised Doug to be a man admired and loved by so many. Love to each of you, Jan
