We were very sorry to hear that Doug (Martin) Shaw had passed away. My brother, Glen called me this morning to let us know of the funeral that was held yesterday. Doug was a cousin to me ever since he and Diane were married, and he was a great man with a wonderful sense of humor. Diane, if there is anything I can do, please let me know. I will be thinking of you and your family. With love, your cousin Carol

Dianne, you and your family are in our prayers. We pray comfort, strength and courage for the coming weeks, months and years. Doug was a good high school friend ...... tho I still squirm a little when I remember the insulation he put down my back in study hall and seeing my shoe on the roof of the annex. God bless you all.
