Pam, I have been trying for several days to think of encouraging words to say to you, Zach, Tyler, Brittany and all of Doug's extended family but, frankly, no words can properly express the love and sympathy that your Uncle Dude and I are feeling for all of you right now.  I pray that you can claim the beautiful song of David in Psalm 121 because your help will truly come from the Lord and He will neither leave nor forsake you during this sad time.  Doug was a wonderful person, and I know he will truly be missed.  May God's mercy, grace and comfort abound with each of you as you face the future.  We love you, and please know that we will continue to lift you up to our Lord each day.
