Our lives intertwined for such a short time. The Lord brought us together to storm any weather. With his wife at his side, he survived. Our Heavenly Father called Doug home, but we are never alone. My superhero from the start, he had my heart. Till we meet again, love Robin.

My uncle Doug was quite the character. As a young man from the city, he quickly found out he was not cut out to be a farmer! My mom, his sister, would tell us how she would carry Doug around on her hip. We loved his sense of humor. I am so glad he found happiness with Shirley. My brothers , sister and I send our love to Shirley and Benny. May God hold him in His hand until we meet again.

To the Glenn Family: From the moment our family moved into the neighborhood, Mr. Doug was always warm & friendly. He was kind and an awesome neighbor. We will miss seeing him waving as he planted beautiful flowers in the yard. We offer our most sincere condolences to Mrs. Glenn & the family. May Mr. Doug rest peacefully. The Hammond's
