    Terribly sorry Lavern. God works in mysterious and wonderful ways. So sad that we should both lose someone so near and dear. Try to think of his relief to be free of the pain and anxiety and treasure your favourite picture of Doug. A large blown up picture of Enid sits in my front room. It prompted Kathleen to say “right where she can watch over you as she did for years”.
    We enjoyed your company at home, on the Golf Course, at the Curling Club and treasured your friendship at all times. May God hold you in his arms and give you peace. With love to you and your family.
    Gordon and Family

    We were deeply saddened to hear of Doug’s passing. Doug touched our lives in so many ways over the years with his warm smile, his sense of humour and his sharing of many fond memories. Both of you were our rock, when we lost first Auntie Dot and then Uncle Ken.

    Please accept our deepest sympathies to the family, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
