    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. We always enjoyed Doug’s company when him and Donna came to visit or we went to their place. My late husband was a long time crane operator so they would talk cranes for hours. He will be sadly missed.

Doug was my brother-in-law and we enoyed him and Donna visiting us in Edmonton. My late husband Joe was also in construction so he and Doug got along very well and could sit and have a nice visit. Doug we will miss you!
