  • I met Doug when He moved into my Bldg. at Gaslight Dr. He is the only genuine person I would ever talk with because he was so caring,with a true heart with the love of flowers and the warm weather which we had in common. We would always check on one another if we didn’t see each other for a couple of days to see if we everything was okay. I always had a smile just talking with him, and I will forever miss him. In fact, my heart is broken. I was shocked when I got a knock on the door to be informed of his passing, I I really lost control, until I realized He was no longer in pain, and in a better place. I prayed for his soul for redemption, knowing he was a Religious Man. Today, I watered his beautiful flowers that circled our bldg. that he planted, and talked with him while doing so, just trying to keep back the tears. Another Great Man gone to soon. Rest In Peace My Friend, until we meet again, Sherry
