    My deepest sympathies. Doug and I sat together through most of our school days. Very sad to know he has gone.

  10. I can’t believe he’s gone. I’m sorry, Sarah. I’m sorry that your partner was taken away so young. I’m sorry that your children are robbed of the years they should have had with their wonderful father. Laura and I are still stunned at his sudden departure and we send our deepest sympathy.

    Doug was a life-long friend and one of the best. We went to primary school, high school and CEGEP together and I spent much of my time in his company during those years as well as the years he lived in Montreal. He was well known for being intelligent, witty and generous. He was always calm, collected and resourceful even when under stress. He was industrious and hard working but he also knew how to have fun. And I had many fun times with Doug.

    Doug, I have so many fond memories of you… but I regret that I didn’t make more. And now it’s too late. Goodbye, Doug. My life would have been very different without your friendship. In the words of Spock (which you were sometimes called), “I have been and always will be your friend.”

    To the Larder Family

    My sister and I were deeply saddened by your loss of Douglas. He was a great kid growing up across the street from us. A memory that comes to mind was that Douglas would always come over to our home and play with our family dog. He even took care of our dog when we went on vacation. Another memory that my mom used to tell us about Douglas was when my sister Kathleen came running home one day from the place we called the hills, situated near our home in Beaconsfield and she needed help because Douglas (age 5) was stuck in the mud puddle up past his knees and could not walk out, his billyboots were full. Mrs Larder and my mom particularly enjoyed sharing that story…it always seem to make them laugh. Douglas was always a kind and gentle person.
    May being surrounded by so many great family memories with Douglas, bring you great comfort.
    Our deepest condolences,
    your Beaconsfield neighbors,

    Maureen and Kathleen Horan

  19. Stephen Kelly, Edmonton AB :

    Dear Larder Family… I was so saddened to hear of your Doug’s / Dad’s sudden passing last week. I have known Doug professionally for about 8 years, and that man loved to laugh and make others laugh along with him. Doug also holdS a special place in our thoughts… last April, we lost our son of 31 years to a very sudden and unexpected passing, and Doug was one of the very first people to leave his condolences, with very touching remarks. I met Doug about two weeks after that to thank him for his kind thoughts, only to be greeted with a hand shake and a hug. That is the kind of man I will remember Doug for. You will have many “milestones” to meet in the coming year where he would have been a very big part of. It seems that the more you love, the more you will hurt. Rest assured that he is in the very best of company and companionship at this moment.
