Just saw this news. So very sad to see this. Not only were you a cousin, you were a friend. Had so much fun in high school, especially band! Cruising around M-town and spending time with all you guys at home. You will be missed!

What can I say. A dear friend and classmate gone. He and Hank shared the same birthday. Will remember all the fun we had growing up - the trips to Riverview Amusement Park, playing flashlight tag, riding our minibikes around the countryside and Hank's 18th birthday celebration riding home in your car and so many more. Heaven is the lucky one now - they have you. RIP my friend...

I have so many fun memories of Doug from high school. We had great times going to ball games, parties, in classes, or just driving around forever on a Sunday afternoon. I'm sorry that he is gone from us, but I will always remember him, his sense of humor, and the fun we had. RIP Doug. ❤️
