    We are so sorry to hear about the sudden loss. We only had the opportunity to work with Doug for a short time. However, in that we all loved his great attitude and it was very evident that he was an all-around great guy. Our thoughts and prayer are with anyone that had the pleasure of having Doug impact their lives, and most importantly, with Doug’s loving family.

    Sarah, Alisdair, Tristan, cats, and family- it’s so hard to find the “right” words to express our deep sorrow right now. But I’ll give it a try: shine, brilliance, humor, wit, kindness, strength, and love. Those words jump to mind when I think of Doug. That last- love- describes what I’ve always seen at your house, between you all. That will never go away. You’re in our thoughts…

    Of all the people that I’ve ever known, Doug was one of my all time favorites. I had so many laughs and memories in my times with him and will greatly miss seeing him each day. His intellect, wit and kind nature were truly special. Sarah, Alisdair and Triston – I can’t adequately express my sorrow for this loss, but thank you for sharing Doug with us. He will never be forgotten. Peace and love to the Welty family.
