I am so sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
Doug will now be reunited with mom and dad in heaven. My heart goes out to Sarah, Michael, and Robert in their time of sorrow. May we celebrate the good that was in Doug’s soul
We have been friends of Doug since grade school, and recently we had been reconnected through Facebook when he moved to Paris, Arkansas last year. He blessed us with his inspirational posts, and pictures of his new house snd little dog Bosco. We are at a loss now, there is a giant hole that he used to fill, and boy it is true that you don’t miss the water until the well runs dry. Blessings to his family and I know we will meet again in Paradise as Doug described it.
I’ve known Doug since kindergarten. He was a graduate of Arroyo Grande High School class of 1969. He was well loved by his classmates and I know we are feeling his loss. My condolences to his family. Rest In Peace my friend. You are missed. You have touched the lives of many and have more than earned your wings. Ms. Randy Ryan-Ramos
