Douglas has been called "Funseeker #1," "Papa Bear," "Mighty Papa," "Cupcake" and many other fun loving names that we can't mention here, but we all knew whatever we did- not to call him late for supper! He was a very loving and faith filled husband, father, and friend. He stayed committed and devoted to his Lord Jesus, his wife, his family, and friends, sacrificing his whole life helping and serving others. As a family, we have witnessed an enormous outpouring of love and appreciation during his journey. We know our hero is now in the very presence of our loving heavenly Father.
