Condolences

For as long as I have known brother Doug and Miss Sandy, they have been faithful servants to the Lord. For now we are at a great loss for losing him, but we look forward to that great and everlasting family reunion.

I kinda hope I'll be able to bring some popcorn to Bro. Doug in Heaven. It was a favorite of his and I used to bring it to him nearly every day. It was my silly way of thanking him for the help he was to me. When I was wrong... he patiently showed me what God's Word said. He never belittled me or made me feel foolish. He was always kind, gentle and patient. He and Mrs Sandy have both given me great advice at times that I needed it. They are sweet, humble, loving, "salt of the earth" Christians. I am grateful for their faithfulness and example.

You will be missed, Bro Doug, as you leave your family and friends from this earth! See you on the other side! Family, please know that l would be at his celebration of life if l were in town. My very special memory is that Bro Doug did me the honors of baptizing me on Nov 30, 1975! I was saved that very afternoon. Thank you for always being such a humble servant of our Heavenly Father.
