So sorry to see this loss. We knew Doug thru His devoted Mom and Dad. A special man now healed of his mental disabilities. He taught me what unconditional love was and thankful to have always got a hug from him.

I am so sorry to hear of Doug's passing. He was a remarkable gentleman. I have such fond memories of my oldest son, Leon (Bubba) helping Doug play bingo at the Moose Lodge many years ago. One week Doug would sit with us, the next week he and Leon would sit with Ivy & Nell. He always had a smile on his face. Our prayers and thoughts are with each of you.
