Douglas is my cousin and we grew up together as kids around 8 - 17. We lived next door to each other then and would call back and forth at each other using a sound like the old man up the streets car horn "HAAAA UUUGGGGGAAAA". So sad we lost touch as we grew up and what a lose to his family. I'm heart broken little cousin. Haa uugggaaa. See ya on the other side!

My heart was sadden to read about the the loss of Doug and I wanted to give my warmest condolences to the family. He was so well loved and to lose someone like him can bring such sadness but the God of comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 He feels our pain. At we can read in the Bible John 5:28,29 that not only does God care but he will also remove all the suffering he sees and gives assurance that you will have him in your life once again. May all the beautiful memories you have give you calm and peace until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache. 💐
