"Through many years "Big Ram" has been a caring friend,family and helper for my brother.
Doug has made it through many difficult and many fun times with his buddy, especially the fishing
trips that D.G. took him on. And all the years of sitting at the store solving world problems!!He and Hazel could always be counted on to help us: Doug so enjoyed being part of that family and spent many
Thanksgiving holidays with them.
He will be so very missed.
