    Doug was someone I looked forward to seeing at work everyday. He always brought laughter and smiles to our workplace. He was truly one of the hardest working fun people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.

  • Alma Chappell

    I was so sad to hear about Doug’s passing. What a joy it was to see him when he worked in the cafeteria. He would try to say hello from wherever he could see me at the counter while he was working. He was a kind giant as he literally towered over me. We were so blessed to associate with him. We will give love, support, and prayers to our dear Peggy whom I have worked with for 10 years. I heard once that we are not made for endings! We will see Doug again. Until then he will be missed!

  • Steve Neeland

    Doug was an amazing husband, friend and member of our family. He was always eager to help us. We had so much fun bringing Doug into the family. He handled the Wagners like a champ! We loved his sweet spirit and his laugh. The fact that he chose to work at the school shows his love he had to share. We feel so blessed to have shared time with Doug. Our love goes to you Peggy, Andrew, and all the families.

  • I’m so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with your whole family.

  • My deep condolences to the Lord family,
    I was really touched by the loss of your loved one. When a precious loved one falls asleep in death, it brings to mind God’s precious son Jesus. It is comforting to note how he viewed death. I would like to share it with you from the gift that the Most High God has given to each & everyone of us. Yes, His written word the Bible. In the Book of John chapter 11 verses 11-14 please, notice that Jesus viewed death as one Sleeping. He viewed death in such a comforting way. And, the Most High God promises that we can have the opportunity to see our loved ones again in perfect health (Psalms 83:18, Acts 24:15, & Isaiah 33:24). He even says where: Psalms 37:11 and for how long Psalms 37:29). I really hope that these promises were as comforting to you as they were to us when our daughter died and also when my precious husband of 50 years fell asleep in death due to cancer. I truly understand the pain that comes from losing someone so precious to us.
    Written to you in deep sympathy,
    Roz
