As more than a friend of the family, I will always hold you in my heart because you were always part of my life and my family history. We all loved your humor, your caring, your giving and your love.
I pray for Norma and the rest of your family. You will be truly missed.

So very sorry to hear of Douglas' passing. I always enjoyed seeing him at the Berkley reunion and especially enjoyed the times they were held at his house. I enjoyed his stories and enjoyed his visits when he would sometimes come to my parents house with Uncle Charlie when I was a child. I will keep Norma and all family and friends in my prayers. There's going to be an awesome Berkley reunion in Heaven someday.
