One thing is for sure: We know Heaven is a beautiful place now that they’ve got Doug Banks.  Although our words and tears can’t bring him back we must continue to reminisce about the good times!
Remember to appreciate the people God gives you because you never know when he will need them back! The people we love do not go away instead they walk beside us every day.  They are unseen and unheard yet always by our side.  Still loved, still missed and very dear.  Rest in peace.  We love you Doug!
