In memory of Douglas...family man and caregiver.
Dear family of Doug: As my sister Bev wrote above, we only knew Doug when we were children and made our annual trip to WI to visit our grandparents on their family. Doug and his siblings were our favorite cousins to play with, go to Iverson Park and swim, the sand pit, pick blueberries, play SPUD, hide & seek in the hay mow,wash the cars, play badminton, etc. Doug was 10 years older than me, but a wonderful big cousin, nice, not condescending, playful. He took me for a go-cart ride around the area, and was always great. He lit up our household when he was stationed in MD and visited us on the weekends, adding welcome laughter and fresh air. I am very sorry he is gone, and send my sympathies to all who were close to him.
My condolences to you, Kathy and Cody, Laura, Dave and Martha and family. This is so sad. May your memories of a wonderful son, brother, husband and father bring you peace and strength at this difficult time. My thoughts are with you today.
Dear kathy, I''m so sorry you have to go thru this, may god give you strength. I didn''t get to see much of you guys but always felt you two in my heart! take care, love Theresa
Dear Kathy,Laughran and Hunter families, I offer you my deepest sympathy with the passing of Doug, and I apologize for not attending his funeral. I also live in the Beaver Dam area, but I didn''t hear of Doug''s passing until I read it in the Citizen which we get a day late. I am also one of the Junction City Boy''s that hung around with Doug, Bruce, Rick Zynda and the rest of the clan as we played at the last house on HWY. 10 leaving Junction. We graduated together, rode the same bus together, partied on the same island together and got in trouble together. What more can you ask of a buddy????? I heard thru friends (from up nort) that they thought Doug was living in BD but I guess I just never took the time to look him up and now you don''t know how bad that makes me feel. Again my deepest sympathies, and if there is anything I can do please call or e-mail me. Sincerely John (Gabby) Garbalagtys
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Dear everyone in Doug''s family, So very sorry to hear of Doug''s death. Though we only really knew Doug when we were all young, visiting the farm, I always remember his gentleness, his affectionate teasing, his kindness. How he always had a book with him, how much he loved music. The song ''Greensleeves'' always reminds me of him. We so looked forward to his weekend visits when he was stationed in Maryland, before he went to Viet Nam. Melanie still has the Supremes record he bought her, our first Motown. Sending you all our family''s love and sympathy, knowing you will miss him so much. Doug had a beautiful spirit.
Kathy and family, I send my most sincere and heartfelt sympathies to you all. I wish you strength in these trying times. I will not be able to attend the services, however my Father and I both send our regards. Peace to all. Your Buddy Jon
We were saddened to hear of Doug''s passing. You have our deepest sympathy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May you find comfort and healing in Gods love.
May 26, 2009 It was with a great sense of loss when we heard of Doug''s death. We wanted to let you know that you have our greatest sympathy, and our hearts are truly saddened. Doug was more than just a wonderful person; he was always so kind and considerate to us that we always welcomed seeing him at every opportunity. Doug was one of the Groomsmen at our wedding. And, we know that his passing will not only leave a void in our lives, but in the hearts of all those who knew him. If there is anything that we can do to help you in anyway, please do not hesitate to call us at anytime. Our sincere thoughts and prayers are with you. With our deepest sympathy, Gary and Karen Moll 6103 Isaiah Street Weston, WI 54476
