Doug, where to even begin.... I could tell many stories about Doug that would bring a smile to many faces, but for some reason I cannot bring myself to do that. Doug was a great friend of mine during school. We were in plays together, FFA, we even hung out during the summers at the pool. My heart is heavy with sadness to hear of his passing. My prayers are with his family.
Doug, I'll see you again one day beyond those pearly gates. You'll forever be missed and loved, but never forgotten my friend.
