I'm very grateful & blessed to have been called Uncle Douglas's Great Niece. One of the fondest memories I have ever is when Douglas, Ann, My Grandma (Louise) & My Papa (Frank) took me when I was 3 yrs old to Mount Paran. I also will never forget spending time with them all down at my Great Grandma Chitty's. I would read them the Bible like I was a great preacher, sing Amazing Grace for them & we would all laugh & giggle so hard til our tummys hurt. Those are the things money can't buy or replace & I'm so happy to have those memories. I also thank The Lord that he gave my Uncle such a wonderful & caring Friend, Ted. Marty & I, along with Kara, Katie-Louise, and Matthew send our love. ~Shanan
