My deepest sympathy on the loss of your beloved one. Losing someone you love is the most difficult thing a family will ever do. May Bible promises bring comfort. Revelation 21:3,4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. God has promised us a new world, no more sickness, pain or death. A world without mourning and crying, to be reunited with our loved ones by means of the resurrection hope Jesus spoke of at John 5:28,29 "the hour coming in which All those in the Memorial Tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Doug my dear friend, how can I say what deserves to be said for you. Words cannot express the sorrow I feel in losing a family member. You were like my older brother who I looked up to. You were always there when I needed you. You had a big heart towards all people. Sadly your physical heart got tired and the Lord called you home. I remember with much fondness the day you married Emily and the joy you brought to my mom and dad. Another was the day Adam was born; you and I had breakfast in St Cloud to celebrate the birth of your new son. Oh the plans and dreams you had for his future was met with so much happiness. Doug, I will with all my heart miss you so very much. May God comfort those of us that remain behind. Till our paths cross again, God bless you. Mike
