Edy and Family, So sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time. Romans 14:8 If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.

Edy and Brian, I don’t expect you remember Sally, Celia and Bob Ballance who lived nearby in Scotland Neck. Your Mother and I worked together at Branch Bank. Both of your parents were so gracious to make us feel at home in a new town. I’m so sorry to read that your Dad passed. Both of them were such great individuals and good friends.

I'm sorry to hear of Doug's passing. He was always so helpful whenever I went into the hardware store, always making sure I wasn't forgetting anything. In later years I would see him around town and he would always have a kind word. My deepest sympathies and condolences to his family and friends.

Edy and Brian, so sorry for your loss. Doug was a sweet man and always had a kind word for everyone. I enjoyed my talks with him at Claudines in Rich Square. He and your mom were good friends and colleagues with my parents Harry and Nancy McDaniel. All my love and prayers

L. E. and I were so sorry to hear about Doug. We didn't see him often, usually at the Speight reunions, but we always enjoyed talking with him and with Trudy before she passed. And he was such a talented photographer. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you, Brian, and Edy and your families..

Doug was such a special person and I got to know him as I visited his wife each week at the rest home. There was not a day that went by that he was not there for her during her meal time every day. He was always around events taking pictures of our lives in the Hobgood area. He is one of those people that will always be remembered during my time here in Halifax County as an example of what a good person can really be. I have no doubt that Doug is now with our Heavenly Father.
