Sorry for your loss. Doug was sure a comical guy always fun and joking. He was loved by many and will be missed greatly. I always had a laugh with him and his funny jokes. Prayers to the family as they now have a void that will never be replaced.

I’m so sorry for your loss! You will be in my thoughts. So many happy memories of our times together when our children were little. I will be out of town on Friday and will miss the service.

LaVonne: We are so sorry to hear of Pete’s passing away — did not know that he had lung cancer. Because of Medical problems Pat & I will not be able to attend the graveside service.
But we send our best to you and your family

I really enjoyed spending time with Pete and his insight into life in general

God Bless you and the family in this time of your loss.
