I am absolutely in shock to read of Doug’s passing. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
To Susan and the Fleming family,
My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to you all at this this incredibly painful time.
May God raise you up and hold you in the palm of His hand.
I loved my brother more than anyone can know other than him. He had a side as good and shining and brave and devoted as any man that ever lived.
We are so very sorry for your loss. We did not know Doug but as former homeless people we tried as hard as we could to alert the City of Lawrence and the State of the dangerous aspect of homeless people. His death could have been prevented. “deliberate indifference” was all it was. Love in Christ, Gabe & Bonnie.
To an old friend of mine. Tried to find you and was shocked to have to find you like this. I’m heart broken with disbelief. You rest at peace now my old friend. You’ll truly be missed. Your friend mark morgan.
