He Fought The Good Fight of Faith

Doug never gave up his fight with cancer, but he passed this afternoon.  He wouldn't even miss the blog party this past Spring:

Many of you may have known Doug from having shopped with him in the Bar W field.  He and Renee set up in the field together for many years.  You'll so be missed in Warrenton, it won't be the same without you.  We'll see you on the other side my friend!


  1. so sorry about your friend. may you find peace in all your good memories of him..

  2. My thoughts are with you Theresa.
    Take care, Sue

  3. yes T, I remember the picture of him on the bike, it was one of yours, I think it must have been 2008. I borrowed that picture of him and renee from you and just cropped it. He was so funny. We will be missed. lauri

  4. Having met Doug, I am so sad... I am glad he isn't suffering anymore. He'll be missed. If you speak with Renee please give her my love.



  5. We will surely miss him. I was looking for that picture. I thought it was taken with my camera. May I use it on my blog? Thanks T, God Bless, Susan & Andy

  6. i'm so sorry for the loss of your friend. in the end, isn't he the "lucky" one as he beat us to HEAVEN!

  7. Oh NO! My thoughts and prayers are with Renee and he for sure will be missed! What a great guy!

    He lost his keys in my shop several years ago before we officially met him or Renee. I mailed the keys back to him and years after that when Renee and I finally met in Round Top she said wait...I know you, Doug lost his keys in your shop one time.

    What a small small world!

    If you see Renee please tell her I send my love!

  8. I never had the pleasure of meeting Doug, but knew of him through Renee. My prayers are with his family and friends, may their hearts find comfort in knowing he's no longer in pain and that they will one day be together again.

  9. I don't think I was fortunate enough to ever meet prayers go out to his family and all who were lucky enough to know him.


  10. ohhh! sooo sad! so sorry!
    take care,

  11. I send hugs to Renee and all of you who were close to Doug and helped him with his "good fight"

  12. Theresa,
    Thank you for the lovely post, Doug was my best friend, and I will miss him, for the last year he never complained, he looked so foward to every spring and fall in Warrenton he will be missed by many.

  13. thanks for the letting us know. He was so much fun. Glad to have had the pleasure to know him. oxox

  14. Theresa, so many friends fighting the fight, needing our prayers, you're in my thoughts for the loss of your friend - sending you a hug, Jennifer

  15. He sounds like a wonderful man! I'm so sorry for you and his friends and family. My very good friend Jerry is having open heart surgery in about 8 hours,everyone in our junkin family loves him, he's like a father to me, so I know how you feel.
