    Linda and family, our hearts are sad that Doug is gone. We will miss him in our bible study class. He fought a long hard fight but we are glad he is no longer in distress. He is at peace with our Lord. Sending prayers of comfort to you all.

    I went to South Park schools and graduated with Doug. We lost contact after graduation, but he was one that I thought of often. He was a happy fellow and always laughing in school. Prayers of condolences for his family and friends who will miss him greatly.
