Please accept my condolences on the lost of a loving husband and father. I wish I was there to share personally the service for Uncle Doug and to gather with family and friends in saying good bye.
I will be with you in spirit and will light a candle and include you in my prayers tonight.

Another chapter of our lives ends with Doug's passing. He always made me feel I was important when I was in his presence. I overlooked the fact he was a devout Canadiens fan. I was fortunate to have known him, having spent many a Saturday night in your house on Toll Gate Road, eating popcorn and watching Hockey Night in Canada and listening to your Dad espouse the greatness of Gordie Howe. Please accept my deepest sympathies.
