    He never missed anyone's birthday, sometimes he'd start a half a dozen happy birthday threads or more in a day. Keep the sun at your back, your face in the wind and the long windin' road stretched out before you brother and enjoy the ride.

    Doug was the first person to welcome me here. He really made me feel like I belonged.
    Doug, you were the best of what is great in our community. You have left a hole that will never be filled.
    I'll miss you more than you could ever have known.

    Doug was a very good guy, and the first to welcome me to BF as he did to many others here. My prayers and condolences go out to his family and friends. May Doug be at peaceful rest.

    Like many here, he was one of the first to send me a friend request.

    My heartfelt condolences to his family.

    As was the case with many here, Doug was the first friend request I received. We have all lost a good one today :(

    Rest in peace DC!

    Yes, that is what I remember him as. That was pretty cool of him to do that. Condolences to the family. It is a greater sense of loss when one of the good guys die....
    God Speed Doug.

    Hey all--Doug's only nephew here. My name is Ryan. While I may or may not check back here in the next few days, I highly suspected I would find many praises in Doug's honor here in the forums. You're each right, my uncle was a class act with the most loving heart. Perhaps I'll write a short memoir for you all on his behalf someday, but know that your words have brought tears of joy to my eyes upon reading. In more ways than most of you probably know, you and BF were Doug's main connection to the world that the vast majority of us take for granted every day, so thank you from the bottom of hearts for loving him here in the forums. I will be printing your kind words out and sharing with Uncle Doug's mom (my grandmother) and the rest of the family. They deserve to know just how far his reach was felt. With gratitude and sorrow. -RC
