Our thoughts and prayers are focused on Doug, you and your family. While we haven't yet met in this very special community, we feel we know you through your posts. Keep the faith and stay strong in the small comfort this great group of people offer.

A quick post to let everyone know that Doug was removed from life support and died late this afternoon.

He received excellent care at this hospital and we received compassionate support and services as we dealt with this dreadful event.

We are 1500 miles from home, and the first thing I must do is get he and I back there.

Doug will be buried next to his Dad in the Grace Hill Cemetery, next to the Grace Hill Moravian Church, near Washington, Iowa, where Doug was born and raised. The funeral service will also be there, late next week.

Doug remembers attending this church as a small child when his family lived "in the country", before they "moved to town". No electricity there, then nor now, a well out back where water was pulled in a wooden bucket, then used with a metal dipper for a cold drink by anyone who needed it. No longer in use, but for occasions such as this, it will be perfect.

I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of care and concern from all our friends and fellow travelers here. Thank you so much for all the posts, pm's and emails.

For those who want "to do something", we are going to have any who wishes to do memorials to do that thru the House of Hope here that provided us with shelter, support and guidance during this difficult time.

We think it would be lovely if something tangible that they needed for the patients, families and stranded travelers such as us could be provided in Doug's memory. Wouldn't it? I'll post something on how to do that once we have an obituary pulled together.

Thank you again for all the love, kindness, support, offers of help, etc. They are gratefully appreciated.

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

....I knew from our PM's that you both had discussed this....and for everyone who has followed this sorrowful and heartbreaking situation, please have a conversation with your loved ones....just as Doug and Maggie did. They will be forever grateful. Maggie, you will continue to be in my prayers and I'll be waiting for instructions on a memorial -- as you suggest. Love, Barry

I am SO sorry for your loss. I know that nothing I can say will ease your pain.
I did not know you and Doug personally, but felt as though I did through your postings and adventures here. Roseann and my thoughts are with you at this difficult time we pray that the Lord will bring you peace. Amen.

Maggie - I wish there were words. I'm just so very sorry. My prayers continue - especially that warm memories of Doug are a comfort to you now and always.

Heart breaking news, I'm so sorry for your loss, Maggie. Way back when I joined this forum you were one of the first to welcome me and I've always enjoyed your posts. This is a sad day for the Airstreaming community and I hope we can do something in Doug's memory.
