Maryjane,Donna,David and Dickie,
Few days go by where I don't reflect on my childhood.. All of you were a big part of it but Douglas and I were always together. Whether we were piling into Lindy's van to races or just jumping around the neighborhood we were always on our bikes doing something.
Douglas had a big heart and a piece of mine is now gone.
So sorry,
Kevin & Sherry Clemens

Dear Mary Jane,
Our hearts are with you and your entire family during this difficult time. Doug and I were born in the same year, and I have many fond early childhood memories, such as this photo at my birthday in the early 70's (Doug with baseball glove). I also recall a few Saturdays as kids, riding bikes and roaming around Tariffville with Doug, dropping in at his Grandma's house for a drink of water... Good memories like this are like little treasures - ones that we are grateful for, and ones that were meant to be shared.

We offer our heartfelt sympathy to you - With faith that prevails and with love that heals, may your sorrows be lifted, and may Doug rest in eternal peace.

Peace to you with Love,
Scott Glazier and family
