"Most men proclaim every one his own goodness; but a faithful man who can find?" Proverbs 20:6. In reading thru the letters, I can see that Doug was a faithful husband, father, co-worker, servant and a godly man. I knew Doug and his family thru the teen years. He was kind, respectful towards others, esp. his parents and God. He had a wonderful family of which I admired. I pray for his dear family who must miss him dearly. May they all be greatly comforted and blessed. Doug was a wonderful young man.
