Condolences for the family of “Croft; Douglas Owen”

Condolence from Myrna Crouse on January 17th, 2020 5:22 pm

Dougie was like family to me through living around him most of my life and going to school with him. He was a great ball player and smashed a few windows out of Buckfield school but the teachers never got upset with him He also loved his motorcycles as well. My prayers and thoughts are with you all during this difficult time. It doesn’t seem very long ago that you laid your mom to rest. Now they are happily reunited. I’m glad your Dad knew me once in awhile at the Nursing Home. Take care and rest assured he is in a much better place now. God bless you all.

Annette and I are very sorry to hear about your Dad. It must be a very difficult time for the whole family.

Bonnie and Doug were always very good to me. They always worked hard for the community. Dad always said you could rely on them to do the right thing.

I’m holed up in the back woods of Maine with Luke, Billy and Steven. We won’t be back in time for the service but our thoughts and prayers are with you in this most difficult time.

I remember when Dougie and Bonnie started dating, Dougie rode a motorcycle in those days. In more recent years, Dougie was the ever cheerful “egg man” delivering eggs to my mother.
