    Dewayne, Shane and family – My prayers are with you all in this difficult time. Douglas was always such a humble spirited man and smiled all the time. I remember him playing at my wedding almost 40 years ago. When I asked him he said he was honored but was afraid he would mess up! I told him I wasn’t worried! He played beautifully!

    I know you’ll miss him but he is in a much nicer place now reunited with family members and serving the Lord in Heaven! I’ll see you sometime during visitation or at the funeral. Love you all!
