    My heart goes out to the Townes family and friends of Doug in your time of sorrow. I know Doug has left you with many precious memories from his 46 short years with us. When death robs us of someone we love very much, it causes much sadness and grief. Our loving heavenly Father, “Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18) Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: “And no resident will say “I am sick,” ever again. Revelations 21: 4 says: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” The family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences. Feel free to me contact me at my email address:
