Mary Ann, we have not communicated in many years, but I kept up with you and Doug through our mutual friend Cynthia. Please know that the love you two shared manifested itself in my life as a source of inspiration and comfort throughout the years whenever I would hear and think about you both. I thank you and Doug for sharing your love with me and I thank God for bringing you both into my life.
My sincerest condolences to you and your family.

Mary Ann and family, please accept my prayers of solace and comfort for you and all of the Powell family. I feel honored to have met Mary Ann and Doug in Richmond Va almost 40 years ago. You were always my favorite couple and I admired the love and care you had for each other and your family. I’m so thankful and grateful for your friendship and have wonderful memories of the times we spent together. You welcomed me into your home and hearts. I’ll never forget that. Thank you Doug and may you look over us as an angel. God bless your hearts in the name of Jesus!

I am sincerely sorry for the lost of your loved one. I have recently lost a loved one and I understand the hurt it brings. What comforted me is a bible verse at 1 Corinthians 1:3,4, the God of all comforts cares for you. A verse at Isaiah 25:8, he promises to end death forever. The one that brings me the most comfort is John 5:28,29. A promise that you can see your loved ones again thru the resurrection hope.

Doug, a co-worker of mine when we worked together for many years at Dupont and were good friends. He would always call and check on m when I was sick, so thoughtful and caring.I send my prayers and thoughts to Ann, his wife, and the boys that he dearly loved.Many great moments shared with him and now he will share all his kindness in heaven until his family and friends meet again.RIP Doug and I know you will be missed by many.
