Uncle Doug was a wonderful husband, father, grand father and great grandfather. He was truley a wonderful person. He was the glue that held Tennessee and Arkansas together.
He was a wonderful brother in law, brother, uncle, great uncle. There isnt a soul who's life he touched that isnt different because of him. We are all going to miss him a very great deal. But we know he is heaven with his family that have gone before him. My dad probably met him at the gate with his fishing poles. When I am sad I will remember all the stories he told me and know that someday I will join them. I love you uncle doug. You were like a second dad to me.

In June 13, 2013 is a day that I will never forget. That was the day I was told I had cancer. I knew right then and there who I needed to call and that person was Bro. Doug. He immediately came to my hospital room and he asked me if I was ready and i told him i was MORE than ready right then to be saved once and for all, he sat there on my hospital bed praying and crying and praying asking me if i was ready accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. I knew right then that it was time. I'll never forget that day, it was like a flood of calm washed over me. And from that point on I knew I was going to be ok. Bro. Doug came by my house every week to check on my during my chemo and radiation treatments. There were times i was too sick to visit so he would say a prayer for us and then I would seem him again the next week, no matter how sick I got this man never stopped coming to check on me. He absolutely loved all of us(his parishioners). When I found out yesterday that he was gone it just hit me so hard. My 13 yr old daughter absolutely loved Bro. Doug, especially the way he preached to us, it was a way for the children to understand too. He will be severely missed. We love you Bro. Doug!! I pray that God can bring peace and comfort to everyone that loved him especially his family!! GOD BLESS YA'LL!!!

I really can't express how I feel. I can't get the words to make since. All I can say is he was loved by some many. My grandkids love that man and he knew it too. Thank God he was able to "baba-tize" half of them before he was called home. His family and friends are in our prayers
