Our family is very sorry for your loss. Doug will be greatly missed! He was a great friend and neighbor. Doug did have many fur friends in the neighborhood-- he once told us that he was so glad our dogs couldn't talk and share their heartfelt talks. He also was a great supporter for every activity our daughters were in from cheerleading to Girl Scouts. Rest In Peace Friend.

Doug will be greatly missed by neighbors. Doug always had a friendly greeting, and often, a treat for our dogs, who also loved Doug. We will miss visiting with him. We are thinking of your family during this sad time.
