  1. I did not have the privilege of meeting Doug but I worked with Victoria and I know her as an awesome person. He must have been exceptional and I wish the family peace and comfort in their memories.


  2. I never had the pleasure of meeting Doug either but I do know that Victoria served as his guardian angel going beyond the call of normal duty. Since Victoria is my niece, Doug would be related by marriage and go down in my records as her beloved husband. May the Lord strengthen her in this difficult time.


  3. I didn’t know Doug either, but I know and value Victoria as a friend and colleague. I read one of Doug ‘ s articles today. He will be remembered in the legacy of words and deeds and life and love he leaves behind. The depth of that legacy must be unfathomable.


  4. I did not know Doug, only met him once, but I know the lady he loved and was loved by. He must have been an exceptional man.
