I am so sorry to all of you to learn of this sad loss. Having an autistic cousin of my own in a family I was very close to growing up and still am, and who has just survived colon cancer, I well know both how much these special people add to our lives and teach us, and how great the loss would be.

Dougie and I had one thing in common, food. Whenever he'd stay at our house he and I would get up ealry and I'd make him breakfast for him.

Sally and I always looked forward to having him stay at our home and I could tell that he enjoyed it just as much.
May you rest in my peace my kind and gentle brother-in law.

My Dear brother, I so loved you and wanted the best for you. I do hope you felt the love . You were my big brother but yet my little brother in spirit and mind,my other child...you left a great impact on my children and grandchildren. Taught them to understand we are not all equal and life isnt fare for all. I am glad to have had you in my life

I was so sorry to hear of Douglass passing. I remember many weekend visits by Doug to the family home and rocking to his favorite tunes. I also remember searching the neighborhood after one of his great escapes. What great memories of such simple fun times.
With Great Sadness and Sympathy to Sally, Nancy and Betsy,

I remember Douglass listening to his record player with his Dad. How excited he was to come home and see his family! He really loved his family. He reminded us all,simple things, like listening to music with your Dad are the most important and the best of times.! We will miss him! Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

I remember Doug coming home on Sundays hanging out with his sisters and their friends listening to the Beatles! One of the favorites: "We all live in a yellow submarine"! Childhood memories!
Sally, Nancy and Betsy:
My thoughts and prayers are with you! Remember memories keep our loved ones alive in our hearts!
