Condolence: Dearest Julie, family and friends,
You have our deepest sympathy in this trying time. We will always remember Doug as the biggest kid at any get-together! His warmth, humour, smile, and loving nature were infectious. We have always said you only had to meet Doug once to know he was someone you'd never forget. So looking forward to getting his dynamic energy and personality back. Love always from the Thompson family.
Condolence: Dear Julie, Breyana, Kierra & families,
Our hearts go out to you all during this most difficult time. Doug holds a special place in all our hearts. He touched the lives of so many.
We have made so many beautiful memories with you all during the last 20 years. We can’t wait to make many more with you in the future. We look forward to with you to welcome back our beloved brother Doug in paradise - ‘just around the corner’.
Sending you lots of love and hugs.
Condolence: Dear Aunty Julie, Breyana, Kierra, and family,
We miss Uncle Doug so much and we love your family very much. You are so precious to us and especially to Jehovah. We can’t wait to all be reunited in paradise. So many of our fond memories growing up are with your family, and we can’t wait to continue making memories forever in paradise. So many times throughout our lives, your family has proved to be true friends, and we love you so much. Thank you for being our family. We are keeping you all in our prayers. Jehovah’s blessings.
Sarah and Rachel Leong
Condolence: It is with deep sorrow that we send our condolences to you, Julie and the family at this time of loss. I have fond memories of Doug and while words fail to capture the pain you are feeling, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly father return dear Doug to you.
Condolence: Julie and girls I was so taken aback to hear about Doug’s passing. I’m so so sorry! I have nothing but fond memories of spending time with you all. When my girls got their first computer for the program they were in for school Doug came over and showed us how to use it and when Ashley deleted something extremely important on the computer Doug came to the rescue. Sarah still talks about how Doug “saved the day” with his magic fingers. Cassandra remembers coming to your place for a sleep over and movie night. The other day she said it was the most fun she had at a sleepover. Doug was always there to listen and answer my spiritual questions. I remember the day I found out he wasn’t an elder and I was shocks because I thought he was. He told me that his family needed his time more. From that time forward I’ve always respected him for that. His family was his priority! Then his ministry and help to his brothers and sisters. I often think of you all and will continue to do so. I look forward to seeing you all and inviting Doug back in the new world when Rev 21:3&4 will be a reality. It was a wonderful memorial service. It touched my heart. You were made for each other. When you feel up to it I’d love to hear from you. Please take care and stay safe. Know that you are in my prayers and may Jehovah continue to be with you and comfort you all. All my love Susan 💝🥰🤗
Condolence: Dear Julie Brianna and Kiera,
Words cannot express how sad we were to hear of Doug falling asleep in death. He was such a kind, loving, fun, silly and most of all spiritual brother. We smile every time we think of him having fun on the dance floor, or playing entertaining everyone at a congregation gathering. We know he won’t be sleeping for long, and we can’t wait until Jehovah brings him back to you.
May Jehovah continue to take care of you in this sad time.
Love the Noé Christina Calvin and Sofia.
To Uncle Doug… I’m so sorry I didn’t know and could not be there in the end. If I could put a face to the personality of the Panchyshyn side of the family…yours would be it. The humour, the talent, the curiosity, the love. You were always such a light in any room you entered and I’ll always look up and aspire to be like that. We always had a special relationship and as I sit and think about it today, I realize how much we really had in common. I’m also surprised to realize a piece of me has gone with you.
As mentioned in your service, “Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one”. The image I’ll remember is really something.
Condolence: How sad we were to hear of Doug’s falling asleep in death. It will be a short nap in this sleep for him.
Our hearts can imagine the deep and excruciating pain your family is now experiencing. The true God your family serves is the foremost example of empathy assuring us at Isaiah 51:12, “I myself am the one comforting you”. Jehovah understands our pain as he himself has experienced the loss of loved ones and is able to provide the comfort that we so sorely need. He will continue to do that for you until his eager anticipation and earnest longing to bring Doug back to life in vibrant health has arrived. - Job 14:14,15.
