Roy Family: We would like to send our sympathies to all of Dougie’s family…I knew Dougie for a long time, but we really got to know him well over the last couple of years, as his brother Ross lives up by me. Everytime he would go up to his brother’s he would always stop and have a chat with us…always bragging how he was going to be 65 next year and he was going to retire…he was so happy about it…We are certainly going to miss his smiling face and his chats…may you Rest In Peace my dear friend…

Condolence from Gerald & Vina Moses on September 5th, 2010 5:49 am

We are sad that Dougie is not going to be in town to say hi to, to drive somewhere or to chitchat with. We fondly remember the many times he sat at our kitchen table and ‘chewed the fat’ and Dougie would say ‘I’m satisfied’ and he truly was satisfied and lived a great life with a lot of friends. Gerald and Dougie would often do stuff around the place and Dougie taught Gerald to use a chainsaw (to my chagrin). One day I mentioned that i wanted my mailbox in a different spot. When I got back from work in Halifax, it was moved. Dougie moved it for us and it is still there even now. We will miss his distinctive voice telling us stuff about the history of where we live and who we met. We will miss Dougie. We have shed a tear for Dougie. Our thoughts are with his family who he loved.
Vina & Gerald Moses
