    Doug will be missed by so many, I loved him beyond what words can describe. I will never forget him coming and helping me plant trees and mowing my yard when my boys were out of town. Doug was a remarkable person and will be greatly missed. Doug would spend the night at my house all the time with my boys and was considered one of the family. I know Doug is having a blast in heaven this second. I love you Doug, Leanne

    Doug, you are loved and will be greatly missed. My heart breaks for all your family and friends. I will never forget you coming to plant my trees and mow my yard when Eddy and Allen were out of town. You will always have a special place in my heart, I love you more than words can describe.

    I know you are having a blast in heaven. John 16:33
    Love in Christ,

    My heart has been broken. I have just learned of the passing of one of my “kids”. Doug was a childhood friend of my two kids (Patricia and Jimmy Clyde McGullion).. He was often at my house and was a darling boy. He was so full of laughter and later in life, he would stop by and see me, to catch up on things. You will be missed Doug and my prayers are with your family. Fly with the angels, Doug.

    We are so sorry to hear of Doug’s passing. Clell had been trying to reach him. We really enjoyed being camping neighbors a few times. Our deepest condolences to the family, especially Reba and the kids.
