Memories & Candles
I only met you once, that fun day at the beach...but I always have remembered you, and Doug always let me know how you were doing. May you rest in peace.
To Doug and family, I wish whatever soothes your soirit, comforts your soul and brings you peace. Grab hold of your memories and let them fill the emptiness. God bless you all

Dear Doug and family,
I am sorry for the loss of your mother. She was such a lovely woman and I have so many fond memories of her. We all had so much fun together with her when your mom and Shelley would come and visit us in Houston. She always had a way of making me smile and laugh and always treated me like one of her own. She is now in peace and with our Lord in heaven

An Angel whispered
take my hand and
come with me
you're work here is done.
I went away to a place
where there's no tears, nor sorrow
only laughter and smiles,
there will always be a Tomorrow.
As I move amongst the clouds.
I'll look down and smile upon you,
while the angels
sing a heavenly song.
I am not alone
all who went before
they awaited my return.
I know you'll grieve
and wish I was still here
I am here in the memories
you hold dear.
Remember how much I
and know I took your

Grandma I wonder
where you keep your wings.
Are they hung in your closet
with the rest of your things?
Do you put them away
and just use them at night
or give them to God
to polish up bright.
I know you have wings,
for this must be true,
'cause God always gives
them to Angels just like you.

You are the definition of a fighter. You have been through so much over the past few years and in live in general. You raised one of the best families a person could ask for. You are at peace now and pain free. Thank you for helping me become the man I have become! I will forever remember the times we shared together.

Dottie was my cousin. Uncle Wally was my dad's twin brother,(Willis). I am the youngest. There was Eddie,(deceased) Grace,(Sis) Alfred,(Sonny) Sharon, and me Debbie. My sisters has tried to get together with your momma once or twice. I am glad they have connected a few times. I am the youngest, born in 52, but do remember her smiles and her teasing and light hearted ways. She sure has went thru a whole lot in her life. I was there
