To Doug's family,
I am very sorry for your loss. I've known Doug for about 3 years and he's helped me out on several projects and also gave me a hand when my mother needed electrical help at her house. He was a great guy and will be truly missed. I wish I could attend the services but I live in VA and cannot make it.

I remember Doug as a sweet, young boy. I was his baby sitter on a trip to Florida with Doug and his parents when he was about two years old. My condolences to his family.
