    Doug was a great friend. His love of animals, particularly kitties, led to me taking in my precious furry companion, Cavnis.
    Beverly, Doug is missed but will always be remembered with love.

    I still can’t believe Doug is gone. He was so full of life. He was a wonderful brother-in-law to me. I could always call on him if I needed anything. He was generous with his time, knowledge of home repairs, and common sense advice and wisdom. He buried at least 3 or 4 of my pets over the years for me and grieved along with me. He genuinely never met a stranger and cared about people. I miss him so much.
