    Oh if the walls could talk what stories they could tell but they wouldn't compare to your Dad's! He and your Mom were wonderful friends to my parents and I know they are together again, asking your Dad what took him so long to get there! My deepest sympathy to you and the family, Doug.

  2. Rodney Campbell, Tulsa,Ok says

    Doug I am so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of your dad taking us dove hunting behind your house and the duck hunting of course. He was so kind to me and I always cherished you as a good friend. May gods blessing be with you at this time.

    Hated to hear of Donald's passing. He was a fine gentleman who was friend of my parents and so many others in Trumann. I will always remember him as kind, handsome, courteous and ready with that great smile of his. God bless you, Doug, and the rest of the family and his close friends.
