I met Doug at the Miss mendon Diner in March of 2016, I didn’t know him besides being his waitress when he came in for waffles with bacon and a coffee, he seemed alone so I sat with him and asked him what he was doing for Easter he replied with “ staying at home” so I gave him my phone number and invited him to dinner with my family! And him and I became the best of friends he became MY FAMILY from there on out! He spent time with my parents and my siblings and we learned so much about him I learned so much about him! Douglas Wentworth was an amazing man with the kindest Heart! He served in world war 2 in the Navy! He worked for General Motors for 40 plus years! He had three sons who he talked about often Dick, Mike and Chris, he had a great grand son!anyway Doug was a wonderful human being he told me about his love and his loss through out his life! He moved from mass to North Carolina and we were pen pals and he called and talked to me daily! I miss him already and I’ll miss him everyday! He lived a long life and he was one of the smartest outspoken funniest men I knew! He was my best friend! I’m 34 and my best friend was a 92 year old man and I will miss him everyday! If you knew Doug you knew how lovely his soul was! I am so happy that he is at peace In Heaven with the love of his life Peggy! Their love story is so Beautiful and it sets my mind at ease knowing they are together again! I love you my Dear friend! I always will! Rest in the sweetest peace, until we meet again xoxoxo ps 108 it was a joke between us!
