    I am so sorry to hear about the death of your dad. I remember his laugh and his bright, smiling face. He always had a smile on his face and a joyful spirit. I remember that he always called me KayKay and was never without something uplifting to say. He was there when both of my parents passed away and that was special to me. We are leaving for a short trip to South Carolina today so I won’t be able to get to the funeral home, but be assured you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers as you go through the loss of this blessed man. May God be with you today and throughout the coming days. Mike and Carol

    My sincerest condolences to the Douglas family on their great loss. Paul was a wonderfully caring, kind man who always had a smile on his face and a kind word. When he sang in Church, it always gave me goose bumps and I still to this day remember him singing a hymn at Easter. What a God-giving talent. I hope that Mom and Dad will be able to meet with him in Heaven. The Douglas family is a family that I’m proud to say were my neighbors and friends.
