    To the Coleman Family,
    While I’ve never had a chance to meet you all I have greatly enjoyed standing around and talking with Doug over the past 4 years at the campground. He will be greatly missed and things will never be quite the same at the lake without him around. I want to share one of my favorite verses, 2 Corinthians 5:8 “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord”. I know we will rejoice with him again very soon.

  5. Diane Edwards says

    Joel and I are so sad to hear of Doug’s passing. While we only meet Doug a little over a year ago in leasing a spot for our camper at the lake, we quickly became very fond of him and enjoyed our conversations when he stopped by to check on us. Our grandson became big buddies with him and he ask each time we are at the lake when he would see Doug. Flo and family are in our thoughts and prayers. May God provide you peace and comfort.
