Dear Douglass Family,
I live away now but check the newspaper & read of the passing of both your parents. Such a loss for you all at once but what a testimony to their undying love for one another. My sympathy to you all. I remember them both from growing up at church & particularly Sunday school with Mrs. Douglass.
Prayers for your family,
Becky Couch Weatherly
Greg – Paul and I were so sorry to hear about the loss of both of your parents. Please pass on our condolences and sympathy to the rest of your family.
I am sorry that I was unable to attend visitation for either your mother or father.
Both Genie and Ken were such a big part of the neighborhood and will be missed.
They both always had a smile and a friendly word to share.
You have been blessed with a lifetime with wonderful parents that demonstrated a great work ethic and a devotion to each other and the community.
