    Brooke and family - I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I have very fond memories of spending time with your family when I was young and especially getting acquainted with the birds! I wish you all peace and comfort.

    In a time like this its hard to know what to say other than i will miss him dearly. Doug was a great man and i enjoyed knowing him for most of my life and getting to be part of his life. I wish circumstances had allowed for me to tell him goodbye but never the less i will see him on the other side of heaven. as much as i want to be sad i cant, because in my heart i know that he has traveled to a much beter place. A place where he will never again be limited to what he can do and will never hurt again. scott
