"Douglas passed away much too soon but he lived a very full life. We have so many wonderful memories of Doug throughout a long span of years and experiences together. His laugh and sense of humor brought all of our group much joy. He will be missed. Linda, we know you are a very strong woman and will continue on with a good life. Love you and Douglas. We will never ever forget him."

Rita Hermann Ciesielski from Schaumburg, Il/Venice, FL, FL

"Sincerely sorry to learn of Doug's passing so soon. So many fond memories of him. What a great help he was for our last reunion! Many, many will sorely miss him. Prayers for you and Doug."

Janice and Keith Nelson from West Chicago, IL

"Our feelings and prayers go out to you Linda and your family in this difficult time. Douglas was one of a kind, he had his way of doing things in unconventional ways at times, but that’s what made Doug, Doug. He could make you laugh yet he could get you very frustrated with his ‘stubborn’ ways sometimes. He liked to ‘stir things up’! When he arrives at those big gates in heaven, we’re sure he will have something to say or change. Who knows Doug could be up in the woods at the farm, or in the big old barn watching us and thinking about old times (laughing that familiar laugh)? To SO MANY GREAT MEMORIES! WITH LOVE, Janice and Keith Nelson"
