I’m very sorry to hear of the passing of my cousin Doug.
I too remember fondly of fishing at the cottage at Stormy Lake with my cousins . Catching frogs, fishing for bass and duplicating Telegram Fun checks worth 5 cents each. To be cashed in at the CNE to subsidize rides on the midway. 😊
I also remember trips to Scarborough to visit my cousins. I always felt safe and looked up to Doug ( not to mention how much taller my cousins were than me! )
RIP Doug.
Thinking of you and your family at this time.

"My Cousin Doug"
Even though we didn't see each other often, we had a special closeness and bond. I will miss you more than I can put into words. You've left another broken heart. I love you Doug.

I'm so angry inside at everything surrounding this . So many "whys" and "what ifs" . I know you would tell me it's ok and there's things that happen that is out of our hands , but It seems I just can't tell myself that , maybe I never will be able too. We only recently started talking more and seeing each other more , learning more about each other and finding more in common.
Obviously my favorite memory is you taking Jay, Rebecca, and myself to water parks and wonderland , which looking back now I've never really seen you in water or a rollercoaster, rollercoaster especially I find strange cause of your love for speed and going fast , guess that's where I get that from too , I guess I can thank you for that heavy foot and all those tickets I've gotten , even though you always told me too slow down which i always found hypocritical for you too say .
Dad i miss you so much and love you to the moon and back .
Guess I won't be hearing you say that anymore either 😥
Rest well Dad xo

I miss you so much sweetheart. We had a wonderful 25 years together and I truly thought we would have so many more. Your passion for Nascar quickly rubbed off on me and I will cherish my memories of the loud races on tv and the two races that we went to together. Say hi to Dale for me. 🏁
I love you and you will always be a part of me.❤️

We have had some good memories going back to our working years at Philips and those lunches especially at the Glen Eagles . We were the 3 home buddies renting a house together for a year. Great times and memories was the result of spending this time together.
We shared interest in cars especially 57 Chevs and car races which we both have had a keen interest .
You had seen the 57 in my home drive way and could not wait to come see it up close. We were to get together as soon as you energy and good health returned. I was hoping to take you for a drive .
Will think of you every time I work on the 57.
Rest in peace my good friend.

I'll miss you so much Dad. I already do.

Although we didn't end up living with you our entire childhood and didn't see eachother as much as possible, I am truly grateful for the time we did have together over our lives.

I still remember fondly all of our summers with you and your visits to us in Ottawa.

Over the past few years we have talked more and more often on the phone and I'm so grateful that we did!

Rest In Peace Dad. I'll see you again one day. I'll save you a seat at my wedding next year ❤️

Aunt Doreen always told me not to call her when it was that time when you, Doug, was to call her (daily). You were such a faithful son to your mom, Doug. She always looked forward to receiving that compassionate call - making sure all is well with her.

My favourite memory was when Uncle Ross brought you and the family to the Heaton's cottage on Stormy Lake. Grandma Heaton would make sure we all knew each other's names. Then we would together enjoy some tea and sweets and go swimming and boating.

We will miss you, cousin. Say hello to everyone who is in heaven with you.

Love and Light, Linda
