Sending my deepest sympathy to all the family at the passing of Uncle Doug - Dawn Owen

My deepest sympathies and prayers are being sent to you families. I just saw this notice as I live southeast of Columbus, Ohio. Doug was a very important part of my mom's (Norma Freer Roberts) life and her sister Ruth Ann. We believe beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it is because of Doug and his testimony and faith in God that mom was saved and is in Heaven too. Doug and I shared a love of mission work. We spoke of it often when I would visit my mom in Richmond in the nursing home. I remember him sharing that he followed my moving van out of town the day we moved to Ohio, and he said he cried and cried and cried. I will never forget his love of his Mom and his love for life!

Patti Roberts, formerly of Sherman Street, Lynn, Indiana.
