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.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. I worked with Doug at DuPont for many years and found him to be a wonderful and caring person. His life was all about family and how he could make life better for his family. Whenever Doug found out something new and remarkable, he was always willing to share. Godspeed Doug. You will be sorely missed, but never forgotten.

To the Powell Family. Please accept my sincere condolences. I am sorry to hear of your loss and know the pain of the death of a loved one. It can be a difficult time. God's Word is a great source of comfort and hope. Isaiah 25:8 says that 'death will be swallowed up forever'. What a relief. The time will come when humans will no longer look forward to it. Even better, is when the time comes when we will see our loved ones again, as Acts 24:15 promises, "There is going to be a resurrection....". The God of the Bible is truly 'the God of all comfort.' (2 Corinthians 1:3). I hope that by reflecting on these future promises, they bring you much comfort.
