We are so sorry for your tragic loss. Although we lost touch with Dougie as he got older, he was a fun, interesting, unique, altogether great, little kid who apparently fulfilled much of his promise during his short life. If only he could have pursued his rock star dream.... Our thoughts are with you in your sadness, Kendall, Kay, & Scotty

Doug was always there for me, no matter what. So many other people could say the same. He was such a genuinely great person with a heart that was so big. He is going to be missed very much. He was so funny, charming, down to earth, talented and kind. My deepest condolences goes out to all of his family. He touched so many peoples lives in such a positive way. Fly high, Doug. I love you so much and Im so glad I was lucky enough to know you for so long.

While I worked for the school system, I enjoyed watching, listening and talking to Dougie each and every day he attended. Quite an interesting and unique individual that was a treasure to be around. Condolences and prayers to family and friends at this time.
