Chris and family,
We were so sorry to hear of Doug's passing. We know there is an emptiness in your heart and wish we could help you to move through this difficult time. Doug was special, and you and your family have always held a special place in our hearts. Our best.
Doug was a special blessing from God to all our families. He always made us happy with his smile and sense of humor. We loved him and he will be missed! May God bless and comfort all his family!
Our heart aches for ourselves because we miss him, but we rejoice knowing he is in a much better place. He will be truly missed. Love from Dougie's El Chico family.
Hi guys. Rachael let me know about Doug's passing. So sorry for your loss.
Dougie was always an inspiration to me, and he will be forever. I wish i could be there today to say goodbye in person, but my own cancer treatment calls. Love to all the Stricklands today and always. What a blessing you all were in Dougie's life, and he in yours.
Dougie loved to come out and watch our softball games on Friday nights. He wasn't able to come this summer, but he would always call and ask when we were playing. He was our biggest fan, and we will all miss him dearly.
Sorry for y'all's lost! Doug was a very sweet and kind hearted. He will be missed by all. Praying for the family.
The posts about Dougie from my sweet friend Melissa always made me smile! How wonderful to have such a blessed man in your family. Many happy memories of those wonderful times!!!

Dougie, you were my best friend, a true saint. I have been blessed to have you as a brother and friend. I will miss your chuckles, your antics, your messages, and most of all your way of bringing us all together with your ability to play along with whatever was happening at that time. Trust me, you have a lot of fans, a huge following. Everybody loves Dougie. I will miss you so much. Love you buddy.
I am so very sorry for your loss. I never got the chance to meet Dougie, but knowing both of you - his beloved parents Jim and Chris - and hearing about him from you and our mutual friends, I know that he was a wonderful person who will be greatly missed. I am keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers. God's peace be with you.
It was so nice to finally meet Doug face-to-face from all of the wonderful pictures after hearing so much about him from Jimmy. It's obvious that he lived life to its fullest with a very loving family. I'm very sorry for your deep loss and will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
Doug was a fantastic person. I am so sorry for your loss. Big hugs coming from Colorado. Love, Tara, Len, Stella and Levi
Dougie will definitely be missed by everyone who knew him! I am glad I had the chance to work with him; his smile and sense of humor made going to work fun! praying for comfort for all of y'all. Great pictures
I am so sorry for your loss. The pictures are a nice tribute to a person that always had a smile on his face. There is a lyric to a song that reminds me of Doug. " Everlasting, your light will shine when all else fades" Your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
