Dear Doug and family, We are so sorry for your loss. Doug was a good friend. We will miss him. We'll remember the times we went to the Lake to picnic and water ski. Also, visiting your home in South Mitchell and enjoying home made chocolate syrup and ice cream. We had many enjoyable times with your mom and dad, and our kids really liked playing with you. We're praying the Lord will hold you especially close and comfort all of you through the coming days, and that you'll be strengthened by the love of family and friends. With our heartfelt sympathy and prayers. Evelyn & Jay Birdsall

I am so sorry for your loss Doug, it is never easy to say goodbye to a parent, or any loved one. Be happy in memories you shared, our bike rides, garage sales, picnics, trips to New York, California were great memory makers, just to name a few. Your Dad, he was a great brother-in-law. Although our paths were somewhat distant in the past 36 years, didn't mean I didn't love him for who he was. My prayers are with you and your family. If you need anything, I'm just a call away. LOL.
