    Your father was always there for my family and I growing up. He was so giving and thoughtful. He will live on in our hearts forever. Don’t let the sadness of his death fill your heart. Fill it up with his happy memories instead and keep him alive for as long as you can. He lived a good life on earth. He can never be forgotten. Our prayers are with you. Lois & Jerry Douglass
