Most of all, I knew you through the eyes of Julie... I'll never smoke another pork butt without smiling, and thinking about you. RIP Doug.

Doug you left us too fast, so much more to do. You are and always be so proud of your family, my heart is with Mark, Bodie, Andrea and Jeff plus those wonderful grandkids who made you so happy. Your Julie, Emo, always running to your side. I’d like them to know how you recently said you saw their love and dedication when they all came together, being with you during the past two years of major health problems. You also remarked on how you looked forward to “Bullet”, Bob Sterling, never missing a day visiting you! Your Buddy and much appreciated Al Sterling volunteering to be your home nurse, always arriving just in time for your release from those hospital stays. You talked about your brother Dan and during one of his visits, raised the legs on your favorite couch, thinking about you coming home, realizing how hard it would be for you getting up and down. You were/are the most caring and considerate gentleman I have ever known. We were so fortunate to spend precious days with you. No dry eyes at our house, You will be forever in our hearts ♥️ best friends til eternity, Love, Hugs, Kisses, Mol and Rabbit
