Very sad to hear of Doug passing. Doug was a very special man and we've
known him and his wonderful wife for quite a while. We met them when we got married and they made us promise to go and see them in our wedding clothes before going to the church. They took our picture and many years later they brought us a copy of the picture. That memory will stay with us forever. GOD BLESS TO DOUG AND NOW HE'S WITH HIS TRUE LOVE...

My sincere sympathy to Doug's family at this sad time. Doug and Phylma were great neighbors to Jerry and me when we all farmed in Providence Bay. Our kids all loved them both. Sorry to have you leave seems like the end of an era.

Doug was always a great "neighbour" to our family. We missed seeing him and his cattle. I hope he and Phylma are reunited and at peace.
