    We all love and miss Doug so much our hearts are breaking. His heart was so big I guess it finally wore out. John was his center, almost 29 years speaks for itself. Guess you don’t have to hide that pillow anymore John! 😉 Sis, Paul, Rob, I’ll see you there. Broken hearts heal at their own pace but we can cherish his life together for a day, right? Love you guys!
