    We will miss our brother-in-law. He could entertain us with great stories. Collins won’t be the same without him.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Ogles family.

    John and family: I am so sorry for the loss of your father. I know he will be greatly missed by his family as well as the entire Collins community.

    I enjoyed visiting with Doy at the Justice home in Collins. He was a very good friend of my Uncle Jr. and his family. They considered him part of the family. He was funny and always a pleasure to see at his store. He will be dearly missed by all the family and friends that knew him. We will forever feel an emptiness in Collins. I truly enjoyed his sense of humor for the few years I was able to get to know him. Rest In Peace Doy! Kathy’s cousin,Sis

    My condolence to the Ogles family may God hold you close during this sad time

    He will be missed by us.

    I have known Doy since I was a little girl. He was so much a part of our family. My dad used to let him use his car to go on dates when he was still a teen. He made a trip to Virginia with us when I was a little girl, but every time any one in my family would go in his store, he would tell them the story about the Virginia trip again. My family will miss you Doy. There are a lot of people in Heaven to welcome you. Oh what a great reunion.

    I grew up with John, and made many trips to the farm to see Doy. Never will forget flagging the crop dusters. Doy was heavily into Agri at one time, and farmed a few thousand acres. One day a few years ago I was visiting Doy in the store and he gave me a bit of info from bc, before childbirth. Doy said, “that his mother and my grand-mother were best friends.” I have wondered since that day if my grand-mother named her son Dois William from Doy, or maybe Doel Wayne Phillips, a distant cousin. Nonetheless I have been great friends with John Ogles even to this day, and highly respect the entire family. So sad to hear the loss, he will definitely be missed in Collins, (tara) for Mrs. Crane and I. Oh, one more startling truth is that Doy was first cousin’s to Mrs.Crane’s grandma, Arie May Ogles Chester. So I guess it is all one happy family. One day in heaven, it will be just that. Romans 10:9-13 . See you there Doy…..

    We are so sorry to hear about Mr. Ogles. Have lots of great memories going to visit him at his store for those good ole cheeseburgers and bottled cokes. It was nothing like it. He will be missed but look forward to the time when John 5:28-29 is fulfilled and we will welcome him back in the resurrection. What a wonderful time that will be!

    I fell in love with Doy twenty plus years ago and that love never ended. He was so proud of his children. My heart is broken to hear of his death. I’ve never met such a gentleman. Doy, I would have married you even though you thought I wouldn’t leave my family. Rest In Peace sweetheart, I know we will meet again.

      Interesting. He was very nice to me as a child. Very funny and kind to my friends and me. He was so blessed to have Peggy in his life, if only for a while.
