  1. Rest in Peace hero

  2. May you rest in peace now Doug. You always were the guy who could brighten up anyones day and light up a room. There was never a dull moment when you were around. I will always remember how much you contributed to Potomac Falls and how outstanding of a guy you truly were. It is so sad that you were taken away this early, but I guess its true only the good die young. I know your in a better place and all I have left of you are the moments we shared together and those will never be taken away. Kick back and relax up there! I will miss you!

  3. The world is a darker place without the light that you brought to it. You can sing with the angels now.
    You are our hero. Rest in peace.
    God Bless You and God Bless America!

  4. God bless you Doug.

  5. That boy came home as a man
    A hero in our eyes
    A brave soldier takin a stand
    I can still hear the cries
    He sacrificed for us all
    Now that soldier is standin tall
    It's true ..He Was Red, White And Blue*
    *from the song "He Was Red White and Blue
