    Carol and family.

    We are so very sorry for your loss. Doug was a very special man to both his family and his friends. He will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him. The special marble game he made for so many of us will be a memory of him that will live on.

    Shelley and family,
    We are so very sorry for your loss. I was able to meet your Dad a few times and he was so kind and funny. His love for your mom, his girls and grandchildren was one of the things I remember the most.
    Our thoughts are will all of you.
    Rob, Rhonda, Taylor and Abbey Chateau
