    He was my manager for several years. I will always remember him as very caring and really wanting to see me succeed
    He was genuine and genuinely cared. I was just thinking about him a few weeks ago. Mary, I so very sorry for your loss.

    My heart is heavy because of the news of Doug’s passing. I have many fond memories of working with Doug. He was a gentleman, a kind man with a great sense of humor. Doug was always willing to listen, to encourage, to hand out sincere compliments and constructive criticism when needed to help guide those of us who found ourselves in need of help. May his memory always bring a smile to all who knew him. Mary and family, I am praying for God’s peace and comfort to carry you through the difficult days.
