Douglas, you were the first cousin I ever met what seems like a million years ago. I will always remember your voice and how you were always happy and smiling.

Douglas was a great guy. He would tell stories , and you never knew if he was pulling your leg or not till the very end of the story. He made you laugh at the goofiest things. His laughter will truly be missed. Rest in peace.

He was one of our hotel VIP's for many years, and was just like family to us. It will never be the same without him. Our love and prayers to his sweet and loving family. May you find peace and comfort through this very difficult time. Love, Robert, Norma, Baby Amaiya, & family.
