My dearly beloved son, Doug.
I am really going to miss our ten minute chats that we have been having this
past year. Never in a million years did I think the time would be short that we would be able to do this. I just always felt rejuevanated when I put the receiver down. I will always hold you with love in my heart. Mom

Dear Shelley, Alexandra & Mackenzie, We are so sorry for the loss of your wonderful Husband and Father, our Cousin Doug. We spent many adventurous days growing up together on Grandma and Grandpa Mancinotti's farm. My sisters and I really enjoyed Debbie, Dougie & Denny joining us. Grandpa tried to keep a close eye on us, but never enjoyed trying to find one or more of us lost in the corn field. Thank you for sharing those treasured times with me and my sisters. God be with you and give you Eternal Peace.
