Doug put together a surprise party for me for my 50th Birthday. We arrived at Chaminade where he had Roses for me, then a cab ride over to Cafe Cruz where I was surprised by many good Friends. A Birthday I will never forget.

Charlene,

We have been so blessed and lucky to have met you two. You guys were involved in one of the most significant time and event of our lives. We've build such a great bond in the short amount of time we've known each other. We will forever be the wolf-pack.

Rest in Paradise Doug

Doug and I were very proud to be sponsors of the Monterey County Sheriff's Golf Tournament put on by our friend and President Mike Burns. We had a great day of golf and laughter with Lisa and Mike. We were the lucky winners of the Grand Prize for a round of Golf at Corral Del Tierra!

Dear Charlene, words cannot express the sadness that we feel in our hearts for you and the Flora family. We will truly miss Doug stopping by while in the area just to say “hello”. He was truly a kind person that will always be in our thoughts. Our prayers are with you Charlene.

It is always difficlt to find the right words at a time when our hearts are broken with the loss of such a dynamic person as Doug. I only knew Doug for a short time, but it didn't take long to see the bright light that shined within him. You we such a beautiful couple and so happy all the time. Charlene, my thoughts and prayers are with you as you struggle to move forward without Doug. Please know that our family is only a phone call away to love and support you as you start to heal your broken heart.
July 11, 2013
We met Doug and Charlene through the process of buying our home and a friendship began from that. Both Doug and Charlene were so kind and welcoming to us. We are so very sad and wish the best for Charlene and Doug's family.

It is so hard to put into words the impact Doug made in our lives. He was my office mate at Intero RE, and then my Broker at Flora RE. He had a calm, self assured demeanor about him that made you feel that problems were not problems at all, just little hurdles that could easily be worked out. Doug was a close friend to my husband, myself, and our group of friends - he always had a new game to play with us, a new cigar to share with the guys, specialty foods he would pick up or order online for us to try. He was smart, giving, a loyal friend, and like a brother to me. Mike and I are honored to have had Doug in our lives and to be able to say he was truly a friend. We will always love and miss him, and the memories of him will forever bring smiles to our faces. Thank you God for sharing Doug with us, even if it was for too short a time.
July 09, 2013
We really enjoyed Doug as our neighbor--even after he moved he would stop by our house every December and have dessert with us. What a great since of humor Doug had. My oldest son went to his very first concert with Doug. Truly a beautiful soul! We will miss Doug and our thoughts and prayers go to Doug's family & extended family!! Bless you.
July 09, 2013
I have had the hardest time to word what I wanted to write in this guest book. I think it is best said that there are no words that I can write to say how much Doug meant to both Chuck and I and how much we miss him and always will remember all that he has accomplised and done for so many.
July 09, 2013
As we flew home from New York, I continue to have talks with myself (and Doug) and have summed up that though not long enough, Doug had a wonderful life. As I am able to spend more time with his family I continually see where his wonderful core stems from. In the last 11 years I can tell you he lived his motto of "work hard and play hard". And,with his intuition he followed his own path and did not, "Listen to the Masses". He was definitely one of a kind and I will do my best to follow his lead.
The Services for Doug were phenomenal, so touching and honorable. I know if Doug was in attendance, this would have been something he would be telling our friends about for days. The Family did such a wonderful job displaying the man that he was and became. As I arrive home, it is still so unbelievable and shocking that we are going to continue in this life without him. But, I know that Doug would want me to stand strong and get moving forward taking care of life matters, our office and associates.
July 08, 2013
I feel blessed and honored to have had the opportunity to work with Doug! A First Class Realtor! He will be greatly missed!

Our thoughts & Prayers are with you Charlene my dear friend and Doug's family who raised a wonderful young man!
Doug was truly a blessing. I thank you for bringing him into our lives these last 11 years! We enjoyed our dinners together! He was an inspiration to us and was so giving, positive, and honest! Everything he touched was successful and always had kind words and took time for everyone! Even Ryan when he would run into him in town home from college! He loved talking to him about his wresting, football & school and the military!
I wish this world had more people like him! He will truly be missed and forever loved!
Judy, Brad & Ryan

Dear June, Penny & family: It is never easy to lose a loved one especially when they are so young. July 26th my brother, Charlie, S-VE class 75, will be gone 10 years. It's hard to believe as it seems like just yesterday & I still miss him. I'm really sorry for your loss. Even though young Doug gave his all to life & accomplished more than most ever will. Remember the good times & hold each other closer as you experience this tragic loss.
July 04, 2013
Penny, My prayers are you and your family members.

Dear June, Penny and family, You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Doug, you were the first person I met in Hollister in March of 2010. We had literally just met at an open house and within minutes we hit it off and rambled on about real estate, the economy, sports.

Having no idea if we'd meet again, me and Becky happened to buy a home with the help of Charlene and to our joy discovered you were her partner, the love of each other's lives!

We became friends.

From your hospitality entertaining at your home, to charity wine tasting events, 4th of July at our home to a New Years Eve event... one thing about you always shined through...no matter how busy the room, you would look into my eyes and speak to me as if I were the only other person there...your heart and mind and your connection to people have influenced me.

You took the time to talk with me when my Becky and me decided to split up, showing up at my door to make sure not only to see that I was doing okay but to see that both me and Becky were okay.

That's the kind of man you were...

You had a wonderful sense of humor as does Charlene in matters big and small. The four of us, You, Me, Charlene and Becky got together for a little "filing for divorce party" where you kindly served the papers across a patio table and then Charlene notarized them...and we shared stories and laughs...
A most amicable divorce entrusted to a most amicable and loving couple.

You also had a competitive streak in you, you loved to play, you loved golf and always invited me, you invited me to play poker...on both counts I never came through for whatever reasons, and I regret that now...I know I missed out on some really great times... although I did always accept your Words With Friends requests and you summarily kicked my butt in every game.

An intelligent man you were.

I was hoping to see you Sunday at open houses and talk about the NBA finals and invite you and Charlene to my driveway for the 4th of July fireworks this year. I am now reminded of how every single moment is so valuable, so precious. You were a great man and I will always remember you.

Although I have difficulty processing your departure... please know this, that I love you and Charlene so much. I know down here on earth that myself as well as many others here will be available to Charlene, the kids, your friends and family. You deserve to know that... they deserve to know that, because it is true.
July 04, 2013
I will always remember the day I met Doug when he walked in to the sales office where I was working with Charlene some 11 years ago. He certainly lit up the room with his quick wit and personality and the rest was history. Miss you Doug Flora!!
My heart is with Charlene and Dougs family at this most difficult time!?

Doug was a great young man, and I am so sorry for you in your time of loss. He will always be in my memory as the polite young kid who lived across the road from me.
