Dear Betty, Jody, and Family,
I was so sad to read of Doug’s passing.  What a shining example he was to all!  We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.  I miss seeing you at the doctor’s office, as I am now working from home.
Again, our deepest sympathy to you all.

Sorry to hear about a classmate of mine passing away. I remember carrying Doug’s books to his first period class because he was in my home room. We played little league baseball and after the games his father would sometimes take us kids to the Pub on Rt. 230 for ice cream! I have many memories of Doug!

I was so sorry to hear of Doug’s passing when I made my annual birthday call. His dear mother told me the sad news. We worked together in the 70s and kept in touch these many years. He was a dear man who never forgot his friends. I will miss him.

I was so sorry to read of Doug’s death. I have so many great memories of my childhood buddy.  He would sit on the milk box and me at my bedroom window to make our special call out. I also enjoyed our afternoons at the Nissley pool. My deepest sympathy to all the family

Dear Betty, JoAnn and family,
It was with sadness that I read the obituary for Doug in the newspaper this morning.  I am sorry for your loss.  He was a good man who suffered a great deal throughout his life, for which we all felt immense sorrow.  I am thinking of you.
