    Doug was a true friend to the Dennis Posey Family. We all grew up together and would see him working in hay or with the cows in later years. He’d always speak no matter where he was or what he was doing. Prayers for his family!

    Zeldra so sorry to hear about Doug’s passing. I thought he was doing so much better then I heard he wasn’t, that he was at the point where they couldn’t do anything else for him. Doug was a good man and we know where he was headed. So God bless and keep you and your family at this time. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days and weeks ahead. Take care Zeldra.
