    Marie, Krista, and family, our most sincere and heartfelt expression of sympathy on Doug’s passing. We have enjoyed memorable times; shared delicious meals; laughed and played cards while telling stories of bygone times until the early morning hours. Marie, to have been a part of both your lives for more than fifty years has been a treasure beyond statement. Time has a way of nurturing friendships; we have been blessed to have had such a salt -of- the- earth friend.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
