 I am very happy to have known Doug. He had a good sense of humor and was always willing to help fellow crew mates. My deepest condolences to his family.

Boyd and I loved Doug and Sheri as though they were siblings.  We had so many great times together playing cards, board games and just hanging out.  Doug had the greatest sense of humor and quick sarcasm.  Doug and Sheri always welcomed people into their home and made you feel part of the family.   They are together now and that's how it's always been and that's how it was always meant to be.  Rest in peace dear friends and thank you for such warm memories.  You won't be forgotten
