Wife Robin and I have followed this thread with such heavy hearts. Although we have never met, we send our love, condolences and support.

We are so glad you two had the opportunity to share the last several years enjoying the freedom of the road together.

What a blessing and I know you have many fond memories......and I agree, you have a co-pilot aboard.

Please drive safely and God Bless you and your family.

Eternal rest, grant unto Doug, Oh Lord
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul rest in peace.

Ms. Maggie,

I'm praying for you. I hope that the rest of your journey home is smooth and that you are being comforted through this valley.

I read you might need some help...
Glad to offer but we are in southern Indiana en route to Chicago. If we can intersect or get close well do whatever we can to help you.
Send a pm and let me know.

So these three things
continue forever: Faith, Hope, and Love.
And the greatest of these is Love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

Please accept our deepest sympathy. We are continuing to pray for you.

Maggie, I'm just checking in to make sure you are safe. It makes me nervous that you are doing this long trip by yourself while you are most certainly exhausted. I do know that your co-pilot is there by your side. He will watch over you. I hope Lili is there with you too.

Hopefully you have help from relatives and friends nearby. Do not be afraid to accept any help offered. Do not try to do all by yourself. Please, please, please try to take a few minutes every hour for self reflection, prayer or just silence and physically relax if possible. You have many friends still praying for you. Peace. Jim

Chuck and I are saddened to learn of Doug's passing. We met you last March at Alumalina and have shared many times the wonderful story of how Lily became a member of your family. Please know we are thinking of you during this very difficult time.

Am at A&L RV in Murfreesboro, TN, who are winterizing and getting me back on the road.

Sweet little Jodi in the service center here asked if she could pray with me and did, for me and for Doug, for both our peace and comfort and my safe trip home. Her grandpa did the same. They are actually from just down the road from where we live.

I feel Doug is with me, am talking to him and telling him he needs to help me get home, handle the mountains, navigate thru Atlanta, to plan his funeral, music, etc.

I also believe...after 3 resuscitations still had him flatlined, then his heart just, miraculously, began beating again....that he came back so his body could be around a few more days. Give time for the kids to get here and us to work thru the process of having to take him off the ventilator. If I had had to deal with sudden cardiac arrest, from which he never regained a heartbeat, I don't know how I would have managed that. He is helping me, and will continue to do so.

I feel certain he was with me yesterday, when I nearly put unleaded into our diesel tank.....I of course know better, but am in a bit of a fog, saw a green nozzle and.... He also whispered " it's the prudent thing to do" this morning, when I debated whether I really needed to lock up the Interstate when I ran to take a shower.

If I listen, he will guide me, as he would never just go off and leave me to figure everything out by myself. He was a truly good and kind man, and I am so fortunate to have had him in my life.

Thank you for all the support, comfort and caring. I feel enveloped.

🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️
