Tina, I am sorry for you and your families loss. Doug was a great designer to work with and to talk to. He talked a lot about your kids, as we all do about ours, and loved you all. I knew Doug the whole time he worked here and he was always professional and calm. I will miss him.
Tina and family – I am so sorry to hear of Doug’s illness and passing; I hold you and your family in my prayers for peace and strength. God Bless Doug and your family. Along with all those who cherished Doug – The Class of 1982 also lost a great guy.
I have worked with Doug for about 5 years when I moved from the Cincinnati plant to Florence. We worked together as backups to assist in SAP at work. Doug was always kind and a great person. He was and will always be well liked and respected. Your family are in my family’s thoughts and prayers. He will be greatly missed.
Michelle, Jason and Harper, we’re so sorry to have this happen. Remember the good times and remember it’s okay to laugh. Our prayers are with you and your families, May God grant you His peace and comfort during this time.
Blessings, Karen and David Kitz
So sorry to hear about your families loss. My heart hurts for you all.
