Ben & Peggy and all the Jardine families, sincere condolences on the loss of a dear family member. Did not know Doug personally but if he is anything like his brother, Ben, then he was a great guy. May God give you the comfort that you need at this time and may you remember that Doug is no longer suffering and is at peace. Another Angel to watch over you all.
From: Betty Allen (friend of Ben & Peggy)
Ben and Family: With love, all things endure, for though they may pass from this earth, they live on in the hearts of those who have loved them.
With Deepest Sympathy, Patricia MacEachern Estabrooks
