    Thinking of your family and praying for many happy memories that will be shared by all at the services. I always remember Doug when I came to the print shop with his niece Angie. Wes and Angie would argue about something and Doug would put his two cents in as well; never playing favorites, just telling all of us his thoughts.

    Doug, I know the fish are biting and the Viking are winning. You were a wonderful uncle to all of your nephews and nieces and a very loved father/husband. I’ll never forget watching HS football games, hockey games, going hunting and fishing with you. I will miss you.
