Maggie,
Safe travels. You have a great Airstream family to help you along the way. I am sure Doug will also help you along the way. Good luck in the future. Keep us posted.

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.





Maggie

Maggie, my wife and I have tears in our eyes reading your words. Your courage and strength is remarkable given the situation. We wish we were nearby to help you. I'm sure everyone on this forum and in your life share in your grief and wish for peaceful resolve for you and your family. I can only imagine your pain. I hope that in time it will lessen and again one day you'll join up with some of these wonderful, thoughtful Airstreamers and continue the journey you and Doug started. I think he would probably want you to. We're all here for you and wishing you peace.

Our thoughts love and prayers,
Mark and Laurie

I just saw this thread and was shocked and saddened at the news of Doug's passing. You have our deepest sympathies.

We met you and Doug at one of the Moraine View Airforum rallies.

You will be in our prayers.

Stopped for food and fuel, should be home within 3 hours.

Thanks to all for your continued prayers and words of comfort.

Doug's daughter has composed his obituary, with just a bit of tweaking from me.

It is beautiful, and comforting to read. I am going to post it here sometime soon. Also the picture from my daughter's wedding that we will use.

I've been checking in regularly for your updates, but not knowing what to say, except: hang in there, my heart goes out to you.

Maggie,

What can one say to help understand your situation that hasn't already been said in our prayers...

A close friend's passing, especially an electronically-linked friend such as we Airforum members, touches us all...

It would seem from your heart felt comments that Doug left us while enjoying life to the fullest, a testament to your loving companionship...

In time, I hope you and your family will again be able to enjoy your outings in your cozy Airstream...

I must say, that when camping with our family, around the campfire, we often remember our loved ones that have left us, saying, for example, "Wow, Grandma would have sure liked this spot right next to the river, we can almost see her standing there with a fishing rod in her hands..."

Love be with you and your family...

Maggie,
Perhaps you will find this quote helpful.
Keep praying and remember Doug is still with you.


I'm Gone now, but I'm still very near.
Death can never separate us.
Each time you feel a gentle breeze,
It's my hand caressing your face.
Each time the wind blows,
It carries my voice whispering your name.
When the wind blows your hair ever so slightly,
Think of it as me pushing a few stray hairs back in place.
When you feel a few raindrops fall on your face,
It's me placing soft kisses.
At night look up in the sky and see the stars shining so brightly.
I'm one of those stars and I'm winking at you and smiling with delight.
For never forget you're the apple of my eye.
--- Mary M. Green

Memorare Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that any one who fled to your protection,
implored your help or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto you,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you I come, before you I stand,
sinful and sorrowful;
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions, but in your mercy
hear and answer me.
Amen.
